for Community Screening
Wide Angle Film Festival is an annual festival that tours multiple programs nationally. The festival screens films that reflect the lived experience of people with disability.
WAFF PUBLIC PROGRAM
The WAFF Public Program (60 minutes) includes professional, award winning, short films screening for adults with disability, their families and carers and the wider community.
WAFF CHILDREN'S PUBLIC PROGRAM
The WAFF Children’s Public Program (50 minutes) includes a fun program of short films made by children with disability, or with the participation of children with disability, and caters for children aged five to twelve years, their families, carers and the wider community.
WAFF programs screen with the following access:
Open Captions or Audio Description
Adjusted light and audio levels
An introduction inviting everyone to be themselves
Low tech communication boards
Accessible toilets (unfortunately very few venues have adult change tables and hoists)
Access from public transport drop off points and disabled parking spaces
Wheel chair parking spaces
Opportunity to reserve seating near doors
Free access kits and phone support is provided for all screening partners who benefit from the opportunity to increase their organisation's capacity to provide access to this and future events for people living with disability.
Free marketing collateral is offered to all organisations screening the festival. This includes:
Trailer for each program
Finished artwork for posters and invitations
Social media posts

It's all free!
