Sydney disability dance film screened at United Nations Film Festival

Catalyst Dance Residency short filmThe Catalyst Dance Residency short film, produced by Sydney’s Accessible Arts, was selected by an in-house Committee at the United Nations as one of 15 films to be screened as part of its annual UN Enable Film Festival in New York, which took place December 3.

 

On that day, Sancha Donald, CEO of Accessible Arts, stated, “This is wonderful news to receive on International Day of People with Disability. We are thrilled to know that out of the 100 films submitted worldwide, the UN Enable Film Festival will share our film with the world.”

 

Created in collaboration with Sydney-based filmmaker Hugh Clark, the film highlights the process and outcomes of the Catalyst Dance Residency, undertaken at Carriageworks in October 2015.

 

The Catalyst program is disability-led and supported by an advisory team of industry professionals with and without disability. The residency is a two-year national development program supported by Australia Council for the Arts, for dance practitioners with and without disability. The program includes masterclasses, choreographic labs, mentorships and career development.
