Event description

Description

Festival flyer


A Film Festival dedicated to promote Deaf Talent opportunity in the film industry. It is not a regular Deaf Film Festival, just like TSWY series concept, it encourages the participant filmmakers to involve both Deaf and Hearing crew and cast members to find the experience of working together as a team.


Competition prizes and awards for Best Feature, Best Short, Audience Awards and Best Woman Filmmaker.

The festival also has non-competition category which will give the opportunity for all filmmaker to expose their work on public venue. Something that is very rare for the Deaf community.
