You may already have seen the photos and the comments from the BSL Zone Showcase in Bristol. If not, do go and have a look!
Thank you, too, to all the volunteers who helped to make the event such a success:
James Barnes, Martyn Brook, Monica Cherryson, Amy Mortimore, Elizabeth Sutherland, Gemma Tiley, Iain Sutherland.
See if you can spot them in Chris Coleman’s terrific photos.
The event was a sell-out, and the stars of the show were:
- A special film festival version of Life out there with a lively Q&A afterwards with David Ellington (Director) and James Banks (Writer).
- The pilot show from Punk Chef. The chef himself couldn’t be there on the night because his new baby was due, but the audience were thrilled to learn that a full series of six new programmes are coming in 2013.
- Confession, a drama about Alexander Graham Bell, followed by a Q&A with (Julian Peedle-Calloo ) and Sandra Duguid (Actress). This film received passionate support, particularly from older Deaf people who want to show Deaf history and teach it to future generations.
