We at BSLBT are very excited to tell you that our brand-new drama, Hope (coming to you in Autumn on BSL Zone!), has been nominated for the Deaf Shorts Award at the Encounters Festival!

Over 3,000 films are submitted to Encounters Festival, and out of this, only 200 – 250 are selected to be screened – this is a wonderful achievement for the Hope team. We at BSLBT are extremely pleased and look forward to what the future holds for Deaf filmmakers. Additionally, the Deaf Funny 'Pub Joke' sketch, as seen in Deaf Funny 3, has also been selected. We also congratulate the Deaf Funny team!

The Encounters Festival is taking place between 24th and 29th September in Bristol. If you are interested in finding out more about the Encounters Festival, their awards, and tickets, you can visit their website here.
