The Inclusive Filmmaking Toolkit

The Inclusive Filmmaking Toolkit has been created to provide our screen and creative industries with an essential resource to help guide the sector to become more inclusive and disability-confident.

The Toolkit outlines best practice principles to provide the most appropriate support and achieve greater and more meaningful inclusion of people living with disability on both sides of the camera. With 20% of Australians identifying as living with disability, and as the largest minority group in the world, this is a huge part of the community that could, and should, be better represented in the industry.

The Toolkit will better enable filmmakers, production companies and creatives at all levels of the industry to ensure their filmmaking practice is inclusive and people with disability are better represented in stories about them!

The Inclusive Filmmaking Toolkit captures over 20 years of #inclusivefilmmaking experience and was funded with the support of the NSW Government through Screen NSW and was inclusively made by Bus Stop Films and Taste Creative.

“Representing a relatable, authentic picture of the Australia we all live in is central to ensuring the stories
we tell ring true.”
