For our sixth episode, we sit down with Genevieve Clay-Smith, Co-Founder and CEO of Bus Stop Films, an organisation dedicated to inclusive filmmaking through providing opportunities to people with intellectual disabilities and those from marginalised communities.
Together we discuss inclusive filmmaking practices, the need for inclusion in film and broader society, the power of film in enacting social change and the educational barriers faced by people with intellectual disabilities.
“Our film industry should be the most inclusive industry; it’s our industry of stories, it’s the way we reflect society… it’s society’s mirror.”
