Dyslexic filmmaking is being celebrated in a festival at Kings Cross’s The Crypt Gallery this week. The annual DYSPLA International Moving Image Festival (or, um, DYSPLAIMIF) is doing a stellar job of changing the narrative around dyslexia and creativity while showing off the work of the most talented dyslexic and neurodivergent filmmakers from around the world.

The line-up promises to tackle ‘themes of birth, life, memory, the fight for existence and death’, and includes the work of conceptual filmmaker Stan Brakhage. Considering the ranks of dyslexic filmmakers also include Steven Spielberg, they’re a pretty formidable group. Get down to King’s Cross this weekend to see what the latest crop has to offer.

DYSPLA International Moving Image Festival runs at The Crypt Gallery until Sun Mar 18. Tickets £5.
