The Program

Film screenings

Wide Open Spaces and Urban Landscapes

Opening night | Fri 12th July, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Screening 2 | Sat 20th July, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Wide Open Spaces and Urban Landscapes is about how we navigate the world, not just physically but socially and cognitively: from creating and customising our own spaces to crafting the perfect prosthesis or making relationship choices to suit systems around us rather than ourselves. This session also introduces the world of Deaf Rave through the Netflix produced documentary Turn Up The Bass.

The Simple Things in Life

Screening 1 | Wed 17th July, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Screening 2 | Sat 20th July, 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

The Simple Things in Life portrays the stuff of every day: home, work, food, and family. These seemingly simple things can often become the most complicated parts of life. From the ridiculously funny French web series Handicops to the sublime family drama of Sundance-featured short film Take Me Home, these films explore the variety of communities in which we live and (sometimes) get along.

Queer Minds and Bodies and Chosen Families

Screening 1 | Fri 19th July, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Screening 2 + Q&A with Steven Fraser | Sat 20th July, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Queer Minds and Bodies and Chosen Families examines the intersection of queer identities and disability, and difficulty of not fitting neatly into categories of disability, sexuality or gender. How do we navigate this in a world that can struggle to understand one type of difference, never mind more than one embodied in the same person?

Q&A with Steven Fraser

Special Events

In Frame | Screening and Conversation

Sat 13th July, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm


DADAA’s short film project, In Frame, aimed to amplify the voices of people with intellectual disability, fostering greater understanding and appreciation for their lived experiences.

Following the screening, join us in conversation with four filmmakers who received project funding as they share their creative journeys and how they have used film to challenge stereotypes through authentic and empowering narratives.

In Frame is supported by Department of Communities

Filmmaking Lab

Sat 13th July, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm


This two-hour lab will be led by local filmmakers Matteo Mazzella and Jack Duncan who will introduce some basic principles of filmmaking as well as some more innovative techniques. Participants will also explore the creative possibilities of rear projection, a cinematic technique that combines performance with pre-recorded backgrounds.
