This conversation is a rare chance to hear from the front line how festivals and cinemas can open their doors to a broader range of artists and audiences. Matthew Hellett is the head programmer of Oska Bright Film Festival, the world’s first and leading festival of films made by or featuring people with learning disabilities, autism, or additional needs. Sandra Alland is a Glasgow-based multi-media artist and curator. Both work within disability arts and have a core interest in LGBTQI+ shorts.
They discuss how they source, select, and promote the films they love. This head-to-head debate covers common ground and divergence areas.
