Oska Bright Film Festival presents Queer Freedom. An exploration of the intersection of queerness and disability with films about gender, friendships, and the importance of language. This strand was founded by learning disabled Head Programmer Matthew Hellett, who wanted to see better representation of queer learning disabled people on screen. This is a special FREE screening of short films, booking is essential.

Oska Bright Film Festival is the world’s leading festival for films made by or featuring people with learning disabilities or autism. With less than 5% of disabled people working in the UK film industry, Oska Bright Film Festival is driven to make change happen. Working internationally with industry partners and funded by the BFI, our team produces the BAFTA qualifying Oska Bright Film Festival, promotes accessible screenings, runs training for venues, and develops skills for aspiring filmmakers. Oska Bright Film Festival puts people with learning disabilities or autism where they should be, on the big screen. Oska Bright Film Festival will take place in March 2022.

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
