DASH Arts Helping Us To Put Out The Call!
(Blog post first published by Dash Arts in Nov 2020)
DASH are delighted to announce that Visability Film Festival will be donating 50% of profits raised from the 2021 festival in order to continue our work, further developing Disability Arts Practice.
Visability Film Festival said "We're absolutely delighted to be working with DASH. Their status as a Disabled led organisation gives us total confidence that our money will be proactively used, supporting Disability Arts Practise in exciting and varied ways"
Ever on the lookout for filmmakers that have unique voices and daring styles, Visability Film Festival accept short films, feature lengths and scripts of any form, genre or length, from filmmakers of any background. But are especially interested in films from lesser-heard voices, as well as those that take stylistic risks.

For any DASH Artists or Blog readers thinking of submitting work, they can take advantage of a fantastic 40% discount, using the code DASH40.
At Visability Film Festival, they have taken steps to ensure gender parity across their chosen selection and are committed to prominently featuring the work of self-defining D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent filmmakers, and are proud that 30% of submissions to their festival so far have featured such artists.

They have already had over 150 submissions, from over 25 different countries and are keen to receive as much great work as possible before their submission window closes on 4 January 2021.
