WATERSHED CINEMA 3
INCLUDED IN FESTIVAL PASS OR BUY SINGLE TICKETS
Encounters have teamed up with Oska Bright Film Festival to present an autism friendly screening, mixing animation, music films, documentary and drama. Sometimes going to see a film can be a challenge for autistic or learning disabled audience members.
The lights will be kept on at a low level, with reduced sound levels and allowance for increased levels of movement and noise.
Oska Bright Film Festival was founded in 2004 by a group of learning disabled filmmakers frustrated at having nowhere to show their work. Now, in its 8th edition, it is the largest and most influential festival of its kind in the world. The screening features bold, risk taking shorts from across the globe, some from the archive and a few treats from the upcoming festival in November. Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank, American Honey) says “Oska Bright is brilliant!” – come and see why.
Oska Bright is a Carousel and Junk TV initiative. Supported by Arts Council England, BFI and Brighton & Hove City Council.
