Beacon Films CIC is a multi-award winning training and production organisation for filmmakers who have learning difficulties, autism and additional needs. Our work has received over 100 festival screenings across four continents and has won accolades from across the world of film.
Through our training, such as our BFI Film Academy and Viewfinder programmes, we enable creative people to discover and develop filmmaking talents and skills.
Working alongside clients and creative partners, our filmmakers' imaginative approach is applied to professional commissions, resulting in unique and outstanding productions. If you are interested in commissioning a film, please click here to see some examples of our work.
With appropriate support, our filmmakers use their unique and entertaining creativity as a way to develop valuable skills, produce high quality work for a broad range of audiences and dismantle stereotypes of disability by reaching global audiences with their amazing work.
