The Other Film Festival

The Other Film Festival delivers an invigorating disability-led program of screenings, talks, industry panels and workshops to showcase and foster the rich talent and experience of people with disability, and screen practitioners with disability.

The touring program offers audiences outside of Melbourne an opportunity to engage with the festival objectives, through a curated selection of films that reflect a broad range of film genres by, with and about disability.

The Globe Collector

  • 2012 / 7 min / Documentary
  • Andrew Pullen collects light globes. More than 10,000 of them. Enter a world where a passion for electronics is all-consuming and a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome is nothing more than a label. Join one man’s solo quest to protect a technology that is fast being forgotten.

Living in Space
