Bus Stop Films

Bus Stop Films come highly recommended from many gig buddies (participants) who have benefitted from their inclusive programs.

Bus Stop Films is a pioneering, not-for-profit organisation that uses filmmaking and the film industry to raise the profile of people living with disabilities and other marginalised groups, on both sides of the camera.

Through their Accessible Films Studies Program and the brilliant films they create, they provide a platform for the voices and stories of their participants to be shared around the world, whilst advocating for a more inclusive film industry and society at large.
