Bluffer’s Guide to Cinema: Screenability

City of Sydney Library and Sydney Film Festival have teamed up to present The Bluffer’s Guide… Essential insights into cinema that will arm you for your next dinner party and have you bluffing along with the best cinephiles.

In this free talk, Sofya Gollan, programmer of the Screenability section of the Sydney Film Festival, will provide insight into the stories that filmmakers with disability are creating worldwide. They are profound, funny and seriously good entertainment as well as provocative.

Sofya will also be leading a discussion into whether disability films should be owned by those with disability, or can anyone tell their story? 

Sofya Gollan is an award-winning director of documentary and drama films. Her films have screened in international festivals in Europe, the UK, the US and Australia. She moved from an acting career to filmmaking, working as a commissioned playwright along the way. In 2016 she was one of the Griffin Studio Playwrights and remains an ongoing presenter on Play School, one of her favourite gigs. Her real daytime job is being a Screen Investment Manager at Screen NSW.
