RSVPs are helpful.
Using multiple approaches to embodied storytelling, from animation to poetry to theatrical dance breaks, these films address varied questions of access (to resources, to safety, to community) and how they intersect and influence each filmmaker’s approach to moving through the world on a daily basis.
Making space to highlight stories that are explored over longer durations, we invite audiences to bring awareness to their body through a short facilitated sensory exploration prior to the start of the screening. Encouraging viewers to come and go throughout the space during the screening, we want to challenge the rigid structure traditional cinemas often impose on our bodies.
This screening will have ASL interpretation. The house lights will remain on throughout the duration of the screening. Masks are strongly recommended at this event, as a form of practicing collective community care.
Films will be available to view online 24 hours following the screening via purchasing a digital festival pass at F-O-R-M.
