dis/cinema is a new initiative put in motion by PhD students at the University of Sheffield, which offers film and documentary screenings with themes of disability, mental health, and related stigma. In subsequent series, dis/cinema plans to show screenings that address further themes of ‘otherness’ as disruptions to the status quo. Screenings will always be followed by a Q&A which will be facilitated by either a director/producer of the film and/or an individual who does work within the context of the specific film being screened. dis/cinema aims to create a space to discuss and more clearly identify issues and stigma around ableism, or discrimination against people with disabilities.
