Deaf Shorts Showcase
Presented at the 2017 edition of Encounters Festival, a festival based in Bristol that specialises in short film, the films selected for this programme feature the representation of Deafness not as the main form of conflict but as part of a wider narrative. The filmmakers come from both Deaf and hearing backgrounds and together their work presents a unique representation of the Deaf community in the 21st Century. This programme includes the 2018 Oscar winning short film The Silent Child.
