There are three screenings across the day in Chapter, beginning with the best of the learning disability festival, Oska Bright, with audio description.

This is followed at 1pm by the first national screening of the short film project Magic Hour, an anthology of short stories by five different directors who each have impairment, plus a selection of other shorts from around the world.

And in the afternoon they will be showing the 1986 BBC film Raspberry Ripple, starring John Gordon Sinclair as a young man confined to wheelchair who dreams about American gangster movies.
