I am proud to have been included in an Oska Bright film program curated by The Scottish Queer International Film Festival and the Glasgow Short Film Festival. This is what we’re fighting hard to achieve. Thanks for putting this together! Screen Shot 2017-03-19 at 8.16.57 PMOska Bright Film Festival
The Oska Bright Film Festival is the leading international festival of films made by, or featuring, people with learning disabilities. It is produced, managed and presented by a learning disabled team.

HuffPostUK article: It Is Important That People With A Learning Disability Are Seen On Screen And Stage Simply Because We Exist
(from the article linked above) “When I first started acting, I faced a lot of negativity. There was a lot of misconceptions from casting directors that I wouldn’t be able to act a part, or that I would hold up the filming or production schedule because of my disability. They were also worried about how to direct me as they didn’t know how to communicate with me or didn’t think that I would be able to understand what they wanted me to do.”

My movie “Like A Riot” (subtitled) will be leading off the Leeds Queer Film Festival next week. I am super proud to be part of a this festival and appreciate their commitment to accessibility. I was just at the New York Feminist Film Week and so many of us talked about the value of collaboration as filmmakers. It’s so exciting to see curators joining forces, too! Well done. I wish I could be there.

Wow! I had quite the UK run at the end of February. My parody of the Todd Haynes’ film “Carol” found a loving home on screens with the Women Over 50 Film Festival ON PARADE! It was shown at LesbianLives2017 and at the “OlderWomenRock” program, at the Quarterhouse_UK of CQ_folkestone
Here are some screenshots from the lovely and talented and hard working curator, Nuala O’Sullivan.

Wotever DIY Film Fest unleashed a mighty force when they encouraged me to keep making Faggotgirl movies.

Queer America at University College London
QUEER AMERICA film screenings, 6.15pm 3 November 2016
With all eyes on America’s presidential election, Out@UCL is screening a programme of short films that look at some of the variety of queer stories in America. We’re looking especially at the often marginalised voices within the LGBT+ community, including older people, QTIPOC and trans and genderqueer experiences. Stick around for the Q&A afterwards with some of the directors who, fortunately for us, are in London.
When: 6.15 – 8pm, Thursday, 3 November
Location: Gavin de Beer Lecture Theatre, Anatomy Building (entrance on Gower Street)
“Faggotgirl Gets Busy In The Bathroom” will be shown

There is also talk that this video will screen in Australia as a public service announcement at a lesbian film fest, and might be included in the December Boston tour for GenderReel 2016!
