The Other Film Festival WA
Presented by DADAA in partnership with Arts Access Victoria and Perth Festival, 2021
Artistic Director: Tony Sarre
Project Manager: Ricky Arnold
Screen Curator: Sarah Collins
Producer: Mayma Awaida
In continued partnership with Arts Access Victoria, DADAA Fremantle hosted its second biennial The Other Film Festival WA, in 2021, Australia's first international disability film festival dedicated to the social and artistic transformation for people with disabilities, the communities in which they live, and the arts-sector in which they aspire to participate without barriers.
Through appointing a visually-impaired director at the heart of the program's curation, this project intends to create an expansive platform for political and social expression, which is grounded in the lived experience and knowledge coming directly from our disability disadvantaged community.
