The Other Film Festival Returns
Established in 2004 as Australia's only international disability film festival, The Other Film Festival is back for another year of challenging preconceived notions about people with disabilities.
Through a selection of compelling films and theatre, the festival will educate and immerse festival goers in disability screen culture. North Melbourne Town Hall will debut as the festival's cinema venue and Arts House teams up with The Other Film Festival for the five-day festival. The festival will include director Q&As, forums and professional development events for aspiring or current film practitioners with a disability, as well as a series of films for people with disability, including the latest from the international Deaf cinema. Back to Back Theatre will premiere The Democratic Set on Saturday September 22; the play explores the notion all people are equal regardless of disabilities, and should be treated equally.
