A rare chance to hear from the front-line how festivals, seasons and cinemas can open their doors to a broader range of artists and audiences. Matthew Hellett is head programmer of Oska Bright Film Festival, the world’s first and leading festival of films made by or featuring people with learning disabilities, autism or additional needs. Sandra Alland is a Glasgow-based multi-media artist and curator. Both work within disability arts and have a core interest in LGBTQI+ shorts. Together they discuss how they source, select and promote the films they love. This head to-head debate will cover areas of common ground and of divergence; it includes a co-curated screening of Oska Bright shorts.

This event will be BSL interpreted, and is presented in association with Be Short Now!
