Deaffest 2012 Results

Winner of Ben Steiner Bursary 2012: Ted Evans!

Winner of Young Deaffest 2012: 'Film Alone' Directed by Braidwood School for Deaf and Deansfield Community School.

Deaffest 2012 was a successful weekend, with lots of people enjoying themselves with films ranging from light-hearted comedies such as 'Still Here' (Louis Neethling) romantics such as 'The Alloment' (Sebastiana Mazzocchio) to compelling documentaries such as 'The Third Brigade'.  Entertainment included Def Motion, John Smith, Visual Vernacular and Millie Dollar.

One of the highlights of the weekend was the 'Keep Calm and Carry on Signing' Deaf party that was held in the courtyard at the Light House.  Performances at the Deaf party included Visual Verncular acts leading by Ishtiaq Hussian, with the audience coming up on stage to try for themselves, and stunning burlesque from Millie Dollar and 1950's swing dancing from Def Motion.

Deaffest 2013 will take place on Friday 17th May to Sunday 19th May 2013- see you there!
