BFI: Disabled Britain on Film

In January the British Film Institute brought together a collection celebrating the representation of people with disabilities in film via their video streaming service (BFI Player). Revealing films from 1911 to the present day, the Disabled Britain on Film portal showcases the work of disability-led film makers, and documentaries focusing on those living with disabilities and the charities which provide support to them, to highlight an often overlooked part of the lives of many individuals and families across Britain.
