This is a fun 25 minute screening of short films made by filmmakers at Beacon Films, a production company which supports disabled and neurodivergent filmmakers. The film programme is suitable for all ages.

This is intended as a welcome event for people who have not been to the cinema at ARC before and/or may have access requirements when visiting the cinema.

The screenings will have adjustments to make them more comfortable for audiences who may be autistic, have learning disabilities and /or access requirements. Anyone is welcome to attend, so long as you are respectful towards audiences with a range of access requirements, including people who may need to make a bit of noise or movement during a film.

  • There is a chill-out space available if you need to take a break
  • You are able to make noise or movement during the screening if you need to.
  • The screening will not be full of people – there will be plenty of space in the cinema.
  • There will be friendly staff or volunteers on hand to help with anything you might need.
