Mission

 We have a simple definition of leadership: Change the world.

The Other Film Festival is changing how the community thinks about disability. We do this by programming the best films from around the world about the lived experience of disability. We screen those films in a highly accessible manner. We want our audience to be entertained and energised. We want you to have high expectations of your experience at the festival. Most importantly, we want you to feel welcome and included.

The festival is proud to be guided by the recommendations of the National Arts and Disability Strategy, the letter and spirit of the Disability Discrimination Act, and by the values of social justice articulated in the UN Declaration on the Rights of People with Disability to which Australia is a signatory.
