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.

Nonsense, Max Clendaniel, 10’ (UK) BSL and English/HoH subtitles The Silent Child, Chris Overton, 20’ (UK) BSL and English subtitles, with additional BSL support My House, William Horsefield, 8’ (UK) BSL Imagine, Samuel Ash, 5’ (UK) BSL, English/HoH subtitles Deaf, Lina Jakobi, 5’ English/HoH subtitles A Love Divided, Ian Bustard, 24’ (UK) English/HoH subtitles Dawn of the Deaf, Rob Savage, 12’ BSL, English subtitles
