Community Stories on Film 2021

Call to participate – calling new, beginner and experienced filmmakers!

People with disability, families, carers and advocates with a connection to the City of Port Phillip community are invited to contribute an original short film focusing on the theme of inclusion and belonging in Port Phillip.

Community Stories on Film showcases short films developed and produced by community members, focusing on the theme of inclusion and belonging in the Port Phillip community.

This project aims to contribute to broader awareness of how being inclusive of community members with disability ensures a positive sense of belonging for everyone.

Community Stories on Film will be available online on the City of Port Phillip website on Friday 3 December as part of our celebrations for International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). The short films will be available to stream for one week to celebrate and recognise people with disability for their contributions to community life.

IDPwD 2020

On Thursday 3 December 2020 we celebrated International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) by sharing a local virtual community performance - 'Got the Magic'.

Two local songwriters, Delsinki and Brooke Taylor, were commissioned to write an original song, 'Got the Magic', for this project.

Devised and created during COVID-19 restrictions, the performance project captures a period in Port Phillip's history during which our community was still able to come together virtually to celebrate inclusion in acknowledgement of IDPwD. Anyone with a connection to the City of Port Phillip was invited to participate.

You can watch the captioned and audio described versions below.
