Deaffest have been extremely busy these past months and preparations for Deaffest 2013 are well on their way. The festival will take place on the 17th to 19th May at Light House Media Centre, Wolverhampton.
So, to butter your taste buds and see what Deaffest has been up to, here’s some news we’d like to share.
Firstly, Deaffest are pleased to announce that Zebra Access have successfully achieved charity status, which now means that Zebra Access will be funding and coordinating Deaffest alongside Zebra Uno Ltd. It is important to note that Zebra Uno Ltd are still the primary partner. For more information regarding Zebra Access’ involvement, check the link here.
Deaffest were pleased to announce the exciting news of Richard Griffiths becoming the Patron of Deaffest. This year, Young Deaffest are delighted to announce Alex Nowak as our Young Deaffest Ambassador. It is an absolutely privilege having Alex on board and, as a young actor and filmmaker with a beaming future, he will be sharing of his experiences via a video-diary, to our Deaffest audience.
During Deaffest 2012, the Ben Steiner Bursary Award was awarded to Ted Evans. Since May, he has been extremely busy working on his film project, which will be premiered at Deaffest 2013 on Friday 17th May. Ted’s film is currently in its pre-production stage with a shooting scheduled in place for the New Year. Exciting times ahead for Ted and his film! Click here for more information.
The Deaffest team are incredibly excited for what Deaffest 2013 has in store – the fun activities, the Ben Steiner Film premier by Ted Evans, film screenings from around the UK and Worldwide, stalls throughout the weekend and many more!
But… remember, do not forget to submit your film for the Deaffest Gala Awards, Young Deaffest Award and Non-Competition films. We’ve enjoyed receiving so many, so far!
