All Access shines a light on the gear, techniques, and craft of filmmaking as a disabled filmmaker, as well as highlighting the many talented filmmakers themselves. We hope all creatives (able-bodied and disabled) will become an active part of the conversation.
In 2020, we kick off the initiative with a series that will be live once a month starting in July.
Chapter Three: Documentary Filmmaking
Thursday, September 24th @ 11:00AM PDT
Join a panel of disabled documentary filmmakers for a discussion on how documentaries are bringing authentic stories about disability to a wider audience!
Casting is a critical step in any production. The art of a great cast is in its diversity, and how they can help mold your story into something even better. In this month’s All Access talk, we’ll discuss the importance of authentically casting performers with disabilities, the improvements that have been made in this area, the work that needs to be done, film and television that gets it right, and set the record straight on common casting misconceptions.
Note: ASL will be available for this webinar.

Chapter One: Gear for Disabled Filmmakers
Thursday, July 23rd @ 11:00AM
Join us for a lively discussion on how to make your gear work for you when you’re a filmmaker with a disability. Panelists will discuss gear that is available that’ll help you focus on being creative rather than frustrated with lack of access. You’ll also hear stories of how other disabled filmmakers are getting their films made.
We highly encourage all filmmakers to join to be more in the know about gear that’s out there that fits all of your independent film needs, as well as to be educated on how you can be more inclusive on your projects.
