The Other Film Festival presents Flaunt – a loud and proud dive into disability positive cinema.
Join the online cinematic adventure with Guest Curator Kath Duncan via ACMI's cinema on demand platform Cinema 3.
Deaf and Disabled people are constantly on display – we either look different, or move differently, or communicate differently, or feel differently, and experience the world differently.
All Flaunt films are made by Deaf and Disabled people either as key creatives, collaborators, and performers.
The Other Film Festival (TOFF) is a ground-breaking disability-led program. TOFF was born in 2004. Since then, it has become a leader in the global disability screen advocacy movement. TOFF centres authentic storytelling and representation.
