The 67th Sydney Film Festival: Virtual Edition and Awards program was officially launched last week and returning to the Festival is Screenability, an exciting platform for screen practitioners with disability, in partnership with Screen NSW.

Three cutting-edge short film works will be showcased: Groundhog Night, written by multi-disciplinary artist Emily Dash, co-directed by Genevieve Clay-Smith and Rawley Reynolds, and starring Australian heavyweight actors Chris Haywood, Robyn Nevin and Susan Prior;

Diving In, co-directed by former Youth Paralympian Adam Bowes and Australian Directors’ Guild Award-nominee Nina Oyama (The Angus Project);

And Safety Net directed by award-winning theatre director Anthea Williams, about a cheeky 12-year-old boy in emergency care.

You can rent all three films from 10 – 12 June on Sydney Film Festival’s On Demand platform.
