Award winning films from across the world have been selected to give this year’s Fest a global perspective to disability and inclusion. They range from the highly acclaimed “Praying with Lior” and ‘Temple Grandin’ (USA), the spirited ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ and “Children of the Moon” (Germany) to the poignant ‘Mother’ (Korea) and the heartwarming ‘After Thomas’ (UK). The short films include the feisty ‘Fixing Luka’ (Scotland) and the endearing ‘Anything You Can Do’ (UK).
