Fearless Films: Season 2

Films of people living boldly with disability

Brought to you by Screenworks and Feros Care

Fearless Films Season 2 is a collaboration between Screenworks and Feros Care that will challenge traditional views around the lives of people with disability, elaborating upon the themes of Fearless Films Season 1.

We are searching for five fearless Australians living with disability to connect with five regional filmmakers so that their stories can be shared across our screens.

Our mission is to provide Australians of all ages and abilities the opportunity to tell their story or to challenge themselves to embark upon a long-held dream. In doing so, we are excited to amplify the voices of people with disability, and make sure there is more broad representation of disability in our culture. 

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for people with disability who want their story told or who are determined to pursue a personal challenge. You will become the story of the film.

We are also looking for five emerging and innovative filmmakers who are passionate and honest about bringing these stories to life on our screens.

Filmmakers with disability are strongly encouraged to apply for this project and all teams selected for this program will be strongly encouraged to connect with and to include emerging filmmakers with disability from their respective region as part of their teams.
