NEW SHORTS: Pick'n'Mix Autism Friendly Screening

This event has ended.

16:00 Mon 9 Jan 2017

Hackney Picturehouse

LSFF return with Oska Bright to present an autism friendly screening for the second year running, mixing animation, music films, documentary and drama. We’re aware that going to a film can be a challenge for audiences on the autism spectrum or with sensory learning disabilities. We’re excited to host this screening of work from both our New Shorts programmes and the Oska Bright archive.

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

  • CHATEAU AU GO GO

    Steve Gentile 4 mins (USA, 2016)

The film was commissioned by the British Council for their Shakespeare Lives season and was filmed on location in Devon.

    Zombie Crash and LAE Productions 4 mins (UK, 2016)
