Where will the next generation of Deaf and disabled filmmakers come from?
Hibiscus Red is a new charity created to inspire and support Deaf and disabled filmmakers and run the London Disability Film Festival in 2010 (website coming soon). For our inaugural event a panel of experienced industry professionals will discuss the current state of Deaf and disability filmmaking in the UK – and what we can expect for the future. They will also consider the ongoing value of Disability Film Festivals all over the world.
Hibiscus Red are holding the launch event at The Delegate’s Centre, BFI Southbank, Belvedere Road, South Bank, SE1 8XT on Tuesday 9th June 2009, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Anyone with an interest in Deaf and disabled filmmaking is welcome to attend – whether you just want to find out more about the new charity, are a fledgling filmmaker or already established in the industry, please come along and join the debate!
