Now in it’s fourth week, READ MY SHORTS continues to entertain audiences with its variety. Last Monday saw a film THE MONEY, which was a hearing take on a Deaf joke about sign language interpreters.
READ MY SHORTS is the only film festival that has been set up from the outset with access for Deaf and Hearing Impaired audiences in mind. More than this, it is a festival that allows Deaf and Hearing Impaired people to meet the filmmakers, participate in Question and Answers sessions, and participate in mainstream cultural offerings.
All films in the festival are captioned, and an Auslan Interpreter will be present for the Q & A sessions.
There will be: Six Short Films per night, Guest Speakers, Q & As with the “auteurs”, Audience choice spot prize, a Critic’s Choice Award which goes into season filmmakers prize draw, and an Industry Panel chaired by legends Jolene Langland, IRENE WALLS, Martin Simpson and Tracy Savage.
It will be running for three more weeks: Monday 29th November, 6th December, and the Finals night, 13th December.
So, COME ALONG AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS
Time: 7 – 9.30pm
Where: Royal Albert Hotel, 140 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills, Sydney, NSW, Australia
