Oska Bright Film Festival is the world’s leading festival for films made by or featuring people with learning disabilities, autism or additional needs.

We show bold, exciting and different work from voices you might not have heard before.
At the most recent festival in November 2017 we showed 66 films from 13 different countries and welcomed 3,600 people through our doors, reaching 212,000 people online. The appetite for this work gets stronger each year.

Over the 4 day festival we screen groundbreaking work, host Q&A sessions, presentations, keynotes and industry panels. The festival ends with an awards ceremony, with awards presented by leading lights from the industry.
