LSFF: The Contouring of Deafhoods

London Short Film Festival (LSFF) presents a programme of films looking to how D/deaf people negotiate the world around them, moving through society and shaping themselves to pockets of community. This programme, predominately made by D/deaf filmmakers and chosen by a D/deaf programmer, takes us from the cities and coasts of England to the refugee camps of the Sahara to the thick greenery of New Zealand. We prise out conversations on how culture, circumstance, race and gender relate to D/deafnesses, as ambitions, estrangement and reconciliations unfold.

Programmed by LSFF’s Young Deaf programmer Zoë McWhinney and presented in partnership with The British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust (BSLBT), which commissions television programmes made in British Sign Language by Deaf people for Deaf people.
