We hope you have been enjoying Deaffest: Rewind and are looking forward to the last episode of the series, which will be out on Sunday the 17th of April!

Deaffest: Rewind wouldn’t be complete without interviewing… the founders of Deaffest! Host Adam Bassett interviews Deaffest Co-Founders Nikki Stratton and Marilyn Willrich about the UK’s leading Deaf-led Film & TV Festival. Running the 14th festival this May, they discuss how Deaffest has progressed since 2006 and share the challenges and highlights they’ve experienced over the past 16 years.

Nikki and Marilyn go over how Deaffest has supported individuals over the years including the Young Deaf Filmmakers Scheme, Young Deaffest and the Ben Steiner Film Bursary. Also, with Deaffest’s 15th anniversary approaching – what will the future bring for Deaffest?

We are not giving any spoilers away but it’s definitely another episode worth watching!

The video will be available online this Sunday, the 17th of April, at 7.00pm via this website. Alternatively, you can watch it on YouTube via our social media links.
