SONS & Mothers hits the UK in 2017

2017 has started in full force for SONS & Mothers as it commences the first of a series of screenings in the United Kingdom.

With thanks to Carousel who run the Oska Bright Film Festival we will be trickling across the country with our first stop in Brighton.

“Carousel helps learning disabled artists develop and manage their creative lives, true to their voice and vision, challenging expectations of what great art is and who can create it.”

Their Oska Bright Film Festival is testimony to that. In 2015 we were so proud to open their film festival. It was not long after that we were approached for a national tour.

“We were so proud to be a part of the uniquely powerful Oska Bright Film Festival in 2015,” said Director Christopher Houghton.

“We’re even more proud that they are supporting a series of screenings through 2017 that will see the travel to audiences across the UK.”

SONS & mothers screens at The Other Film Festival

The Other Film Festival

Following on from our win at Antenna Documentary Film Festival and the ATOM Awards SONS & mothers will screen at The Other Film Festival in Melbourne.

“We are so proud to be a part of a festival which celebrates the lived experience of people with a disability,” says Director Christopher Houghton.

“Our film aims to put our audience up close and personal with actors with a disability, so we feel right at home in the program.”

The Other Film Festival showcases the very best of new cinema about the lived experience of disability from around the world. Films are screened “in the most accessible way possible, delivering global best practice in meeting the access requirements of all patrons.”

This means it is another opportunity for us to screen the film with captions and audio description.

“I love being in an audience which is experiencing the film in such an accessible way,” says Houghton. “It brings home to me how cinema should be an experience for all audiences and not just some.”

Director Christopher Houghton will be attending the screening with a Q&A.
