Bus Stop Films is a pioneering, not-for-profit organisation that uses filmmaking and the film industry to raise the profile of people living with disabilities and other marginalised groups, on both sides of the camera.

Through our Accessible Films Studies Program and the brilliant films we create, we provide a platform for the voices and stories of our participants to be shared around the world, whilst advocating for a more inclusive film industry and society at large.

Programs

Our 40 week Accessible Films Studies Program is delivered by talented filmmakers and support workers in Sydney, Parramatta, Wollongong, Canberra, Brisbane and Online. 

Students benefit from exclusive workplace opportunities, excursions, mentoring with industry professionals and the opportunity to work collaboratively on a film project.
