Access for All

Access for All is a short film-making project with members of STAAG (St Aidan’s Advocacy Group). This group of adults with intellectual disabilities will work with filmmaker Michael Benson to create a short film. Developing auto-biographical storytelling skills, the film will enable the group to share their day-to-day experiences, and highlight the challenges they face living in a world that is largely shaped for those who do not have intellectual disabilities. Working in front of and behind the camera, the group will experience pre-production, scripting, casting, using a camera, acting, editing, and post-production. The group will be the creative drivers of the project.

Post-production, the film will be shown on various social media platforms, and participants will organise a public screening in the Autumn of 2024. More details of this will be announced in August.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
