uScreen is a cutting edge fully accessible website which aims to provide young deaf and disabled (alongside non-disabled young people) from the South East aged 14-25 years the opportunities to share, learn and collaborate on film-making.
The site which is made up of three specially created accessible film-making tools will be supported by online and live events, expert mentoring, workshops and film festivals, so young people can meet new friends and make contacts with film-makers and specialists across the region. We also hope that young filmmakers will develop international partnerships through the online projects and exchanges.
uScreen is part of Accentuate, a transformational programme of 15 projects which seeks to change perceptions and offer opportunities to showcase the talents of deaf and disabled people. Inspired by our proud heritage of Stoke Mandeville as the birthplace of the Paralympic movement, and funded by Legacy Trust UK, SEEDA, The North Seas Screen Partnership and the regional cultural agencies,
The Accentuate programme is being managed by Screen South, the regional screen agency for the South East. Accentuate has 1000 days to create a cultural legacy.
