The three -year funding is part of the Screen Australia Festival and Events Fund.

The Other Film Festival is working to a new all year-round delivery model. The Other Film Festival offers three program streams:

Screening: Offers Deaf and Disabled filmmakers and audiences an international platform.  Authentic storytelling and representation is at the centre.

Industry: A call to action on leading sustainable inclusive change. Our Industry Program is a practical and accessible. It brings together the screen industry with Deaf and Disabled screen creatives and audiences.

Community: We support opportunities for Deaf and Disabled storytellers and filmmakers.

The Other Film Festival is hybrid delivery- in person and online.

The Other Film Festival (TOFF) is a ground-breaking disability-led program. TOFF was born in 2004. Since then, it has become a leader in the global disability screen advocacy movement. TOFF centres authentic storytelling and representation.

TOFF’s next public program is the Alter State screening program, Flaunt.
