Cathy Heffernan has joined the BSLBT staff team as its new web editor. Before this, she worked at the Guardian for over five years – initially as a reporter and writer then as a subeditor.

This isn’t the first time Cathy has worked with BSLBT – she co-produced Deaf Sisterhood and directed Crossing the Divide, both of which are on the BSLZone.

As part of her job, Cathy will be keeping you posted on upcoming films and programmes, interviewing filmmakers and actors as well as finding out what Zoomies have been getting up to since making their films.

She will also be looking at ways of bringing more BSL content on to the website and would love to hear from you if you have any ideas or feedback.
