Community films

Australia’s disability sector relies on many organisations to continue supporting people with disabilities. Ten of these were selected to play an exciting and important role with Twenty Years: Twenty Stories, by developing films themselves. For some of these organisations, it was their first foray into film making, others outsourced to more experienced people. And for one film maker, it was a far more personal experience; not only making a film about disability, but experiencing a disability as well.
