Together! 2017 Disability Film Festival

Deadline for entries: 23 November | London | No fees or charges

The sixth annual Together! Disability Film Festival takes place from 8-10 December 2017 at the Old Town Hall Stratford, London. The Together! Disability Film Festival is the only UK disability film festival that covers all impairment groups, including disabled people with physical and sensory conditions, learning difficulties, mental health difficulties and long-term health conditions. We release the programme with the addition of links to available online versions and trailers each morning, and these remain online in our archive as a  portal to Disability Film for programmers and scholars.

Entries are being accepted now via film@together2012.org.uk In addition to any other information you send, please include programme information in the following format:

Name of Film; Name of Director; Country of Origin; Year of Completion; Length; Premiere status; Link to any Online Version or Trailer; Access Status (i.e. English captions, audio-description, BSL); + 2/3 sentences of description; and at least 1 still. We accept entries in any format (DVDs and sticks)  to Together! 2012 CIC, 90A Tudor Road, London E6 1DR, but need the information above via email.

We accept entries on every theme from disabled filmmakers, and entries from non-disabled filmmakers where disability is the central theme or there is a strong disabled character in the film. Our programmes include Animation, Artists’ Films & Videos, Dance, Short Dramas and Short Documentaries, together with feature-length dramas and documentaries and special events, and a programme for locally based filmmakers. You can find further details of previous years’ programmes via the Archive section of this website.

We welcome films made on every budget. Our priority is to provide a platform for strong storytelling, highlighting the lived experiences of disabled people from diverse backgrounds and the talents of community, emerging and mid-career disabled filmmakers. Many of our films are world or international premieres, and go on to festivals worldwide.
