SQIFF18 SQIFF Shorts: Deaf Perspectives
Sat 8 December 2018
A showcase of work by and about Deaf queer filmmakers and artists. Films include Dickie Hearts’ latest short, zombie spectacular The Deaf vs The Dead; a documentary about Deaf gay porn actor, Rick; a film-poem about combining spoken and signed languages, Bilingual Poet’s Dilemma; and The Unlimited House of Krip, a doc exploring the fusion of D/deaf and disabled performers with the extravagant world of vogue culture.
Films in English and German as well as British, American, and German sign languages with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available.
Films rely to some extent on visual material but most have explanatory dialogue and voiceover, so are relatively accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.
Comfy seating (bean bags) available. If you would like to reserve this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a limited travel fund to assist people to come to the Festival for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to apply for this, please contact email@example.com.
