This event has ended.

Hackney Picturehouse (screen TBC)

LSFF are presenting their first Autism Friendly Screening in partnership with Oska Bright Film Festival. We’re aware that going to a general performance of a film can be a challenge for audiences on the autism spectrum or with sensory or learning disabilities. To promote greater social inclusion, we’re excited to host an adapted screening of a selection from our New Shorts programmes.

The lights will be kept on at a low level, with reduced sound levels and an allowance for increased levels of movement and noise. This screening is suitable for all audiences.

  • TREES AND GOLD

    William Powers 4 mins (UK, 2015)

    'Trees and Gold’ is Will and Joe's second collaboration with singer/songwriter Samantha Whates. It’s imagery was inspired by the shadow puppet animation of Lotte Reiniger, but it’s narrative is more surreal. A blend of myths and folklore with intrusions from the modern world, with it’s own peculiar atmosphere somewhere between fairy tales and something more sinister."
  • WHINSTOR NORVILLE DINES AGAIN AT THE GOTHIQUE

  • WILDLESS

    Kev McCrae & Jonny Harris 3 mins (UK, 2015)

    ‘Wildless’ cascades us in time and gives a glimpse of Scotland’s past, present and future. As we lose wildlife and destroy habitats are we also in danger of losing a vital and inherent connection with the natural world? Our environment is a reflection of us. Can we re-connect and restore declining wildlife populations and wonderment?
