Access in the documentary field is often framed in technical terms, instead of in creative, conceptual, and spiritual ways. In this virtual discussion on the spirit of independence, filmmakers Ella Glendining, Lindsey Dryden, and other filmmakers will elaborate on what voice, audience, and success mean to them as disabled filmmakers, and how reframing "access" beyond accessibility can create and sustain space for radical new voices in the documentary industry. This session is open to all attendees.

BFI Doc Society, in partnership with FWD-Doc, is hosting a virtual Delegation of six UK filmmakers, producers, and editors who identify as disabled, D/deaf, and/or neurodivergent. The cohort will comprise emerging and experienced filmmakers for whom access to Getting Real ’24 will provide crucial opportunities for international exposure and engagement with the global documentary community.
