DOCUMENTARY MOVIES BY DEAF PEOPLE OR ABOUT DEAF PEOPLE

In 2007 the Assembly of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) met in Spain and chose the South Africa's bid to host the 16th World Congress of the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD), which will be held in Durban in 2011. Among the objectives set by the Organisers of the XVI World Congress of the WFD, are to offer a wide cultural programme including as many artistic and cultural programmes as possible to the Deaf delegates. For that purpose, a room the ICC in Durban will be specifically reserved for screening documentaries, movies, short films and reports as a clear sample of the creativity and work done by and about Deaf people. People interested in participating in this activity are invited to submit their proposals. They will be assessed by a specialised team that will consider their screening possibilities for this Congress.
