After the success of London Short Film Festival’s first screening exclusively for Deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences this January, we’re proud to present a nationwide tour of Lives in Sign Language.

Curated by LSFF’s young Deaf programmer Zoë McWhinney, we present a fresh selection of contemporary short films foregrounding the richness of D/deaf culture and experience, including this year’s Academy Award winner for Best Short Film, The Silent Child. These shorts span genres - from comedy, romance, horror - to bring the stories of D/deaf characters to the screen in a space inclusive for all, but tailored specifically to the needs of D/deaf cinema-goers.

All films will include BSL dialogue and/or subtitles, and additional BSL support where necessary, and the programme will be introduced on screen by programmer Zoë McWhinney.
