After the success of London Short Film Festival’s first screening exclusively for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences this January, we’re proud to present a nationwide tour of Lives in Sign Languages.
Curated by LSFF’s young Deaf programmer Zoë McWhinney, we present a fresh selection of contemporary short films foregrounding the richness of D/deaf culture and experience, including this year’s Academy Award winner for Best Short Film, The Silent Child. These shorts span genres - from comedy, romance, horror - to bring the stories of D/deaf characters to the screen in a space inclusive for all, but tailored specifically to the needs of D/deaf cinema-goers.
All films will include BSL dialogue and/or subtitles, and additional BSL support where necessary.
Zoë McWhinney will introduce her programme and join us for a Q&A.
