As part of Disability History Month, we are happy to participate in the Together!2015 Disability Film Festival.
The programme is on the Together! 2015 DFF website.
There are many good discussions to be had and great films to discover – we recommend Margarita with a Straw (Saturday night 6.30pm)¬† in particular.! Some of us were there at the premiere last year and met some of the cast and dinner with Malini Chib.
