Available from now until the end of 2018, Encounters - the UK’s leading short film festival – presents a touring programme of premium short films that firmly put the spotlight on the Deaf community and filmmakers, the Encounters Deaf Shorts Showcase.

You have the choice whether to screen as a curated programme or select individual films to play before a feature. If you’d like us to recommend individual shorts to compliment your upcoming titles then please contact us to discuss.

Programme pricing: minimum guarantee of £50 against 15% (please contact us to discuss options for screening individual films)
