Tracey chats about Bus Stop Films
Kate and Mandy talk to Tracey Corbin-Matchett OAM, CEO of Bus Stop Films, who make films with, for and about people from diverse backgrounds and abilities.
Bus Stop Films’s Accessible Film Studies Program offers people the chance to learn about filmmaking and working in the screen industry. The year-long program teaches practical and creative screen industry skills while also providing the opportunity to build community, make friends, increase confidence and learn work-ready skills.
Participants make films about topics and ideas that they’re interested in pursuing, across all film genres. There’s no exams or assessments and they can spend as long as they like in the program.
Their films are regularly entered in film festivals worldwide and participants are often walking the red carpet to showcase their work! Bus Stop Films also has an employment program that assists participants in finding work in the screen industry, and for production companies looking to hire people with disabilities.
Tracey shares a little bit about her background in community welfare and engagement, her family and her advocacy work in lobbying for the screen industry to become as equitable and accessible as other industries, given the amount of flexible roles and opportunities it offers to people with disabilities. Check out Bus Stop Films via YouTube or Instagram or visit their website to learn how to get involved. Thank you so much Tracey for sharing Bus Stop Films with us!
