Celebrating their 10th Birthday, Oska Bright Festival will be bringing bold, brilliant, and boundary-breaking films from all over the globe to Storyhouse.
This Best of the Fest screening is a pick’n’mix of some of the highlights from Oska Bright 2022. This programme packs a punch and is a great way to see a little bit of everything and to help celebrate Oska Bright Film Festival 2022. Watch out for killer mattresses, unexplained sinkholes, and a grumpy old man.
With less than 5% of disabled people working in the UK film industry, Oska Bright Film Festival is driven to make change happen. Working internationally with industry partners and funded by the BFI, the Oska Bright team produces the BAFTA and BIFA qualifying Oska Bright Film Festival, promoting accessible screenings and running training for venues. Oska Bright Film Festival puts people with learning disabilities or autism where they should be, on the big screen. Just under 700 films were submitted to the 2022 festival from 55 countries.
Storyhouse are using the opportunity of this showcase screening to launch our own programme of training for people with learning disabilities or autism who are interested in programming film events into Storyhouse Cinema. Come along if you love cinema and want to learn how to get films seen. There will be three workshops in May – they are free to attend. As part of this training you will get to choose some films that have been made by adults who have a learning disability. These film will then be screened at Kaleidoscope Festival in July.
