A range of BSL Zone dramas lit up London's East End Film Festival on Sunday 30th June!
 
There was a good turn out, with over 50 people there to watch five of the films which were made as part of the BSLBT's Zoom filmmaking scheme.
 
The scheme gave deaf filmmakers the opportunity to work with Neath Films - a professional production company - to make their short films.

The films shown were The End, You, Me, Confession, Little World and Strangers. (Click on their titles to watch them on this site!)

After the screening, three of the directors, Becky Bailey, Brian Duffy and Ted Evans went on stage for a question and answer session, with deaf filmmaker and actor David Ellington asking the first question!

The BSLBT's Maggie Swinfen and Steven Wynne (who chaired the question and answer session) welcomed the Zoom filmmakers, along with Maverick Litchfield-Kelly from Neath Films, who produced the dramas. Actors William Grint and Rose Ayling were also in the audience. 
 
The BSL Zone would like to thank the filmmakers for coming along, and Neath Films for arranging the event. We would also like to thank festival organiser Alison Pollock for showcasing the films at the festival.

The East End film festival continues all week, with Dummy Jim, which stars Samuel Dore (who was creative consultant on the Zoom scheme) being shown at at the Rich Mix cinema in Shoreditch on Saturday 6th July. For more information on that screening, click here.
