WORLDEAF Cinema Festival

WORLDEAF Cinema Festival

Gallaudet University hosted the WORLDEAF Cinema Festival in November 2010 in Washington, DC. The event brought together filmmakers, scholars, and artists from around the world to celebrate the unique perspectives brought to the art of filmmaking by deaf and hard of hearing people as well as by hearing filmmakers whose works reflect deaf themes. A film competition and award ceremony showcased top selections from filmmakers from 30 countries.

In this document of the event by Sally Gifford, artists and filmmakers in the deaf community discussed the challenges and opportunities in today's media environment.
