We will be joined by executives from STOP PLAY RECORD who will discuss the short film opportunities offered by their Random Acts short film programme.

About 104 films
104 films are the world leaders in disability cinema. We have made eight feature films including Special People, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, I Am Breathing and Notes on Blindness and over sixty short films with Deaf & Disabled film talent. We run a raft of training and development programmes for Deaf & Disabled film talent.
Our aims are to make a tectonic difference in the representation of Deaf & Disabled film talent in front of and behind the camera and to enable the voice of disabled film talent in the cinema mainstream.
