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.
