Friends and family members of student filmmakers from Chatham, Germantown, and Hudson schools turn out for screening of three short films and a surprise “blooper” reel, followed by a lively Q&A with audience.
Sensory Friendly Films are a special opportunity for individuals living with autism and others to enjoy films in a safe and accepting environment. Lights in the theatre are turned slightly up (dim lights will remain on) and the sound is turned slightly down. Audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout, sing, or do anything they feel they need to do in order to be comfortable–unless the safety of the audience is in question. Many others, not on the autism spectrum, may also enjoy Sensory Friendly Films as they provide an opportunity for families to meet, for siblings of children with autism to get to know other children, and to enjoy a movie in a climate of acceptance and understanding.
