Watch: Award-winning short film The Kiss – do deaf people kiss differently?

Posted on May 18, 2015



After premiering at last year’s Bradford International Film Festival and then being shown around the world at Deaf and disability festivals, short film The Kiss is now online, after being shown at Deaffest last weekend.

The film, which features a very strange kiss indeed, was written and directed by this site’s Editor, Charlie Swinbourne, and won the Best Film and Best Scriptwriter awards at the Basque Region Festival of Deaf Arts and Film late last year.

Here it is – we hope you enjoy it.
