The workshops will be facilitated by Brianna Kell and Margot Politis.

The Right Foot workshops for 2016 are open for registration (booking essential):

Let's hope we can get to see this movie in Australia. Check out the trailers embedded in the news story:

Award-winning Irish film starring cast who have intellectual disabilities hopes to go global
The Journal, 24 July 2016
An Irish film starring nine young actors who have intellectual disabilities is hoping to go global and be shown at international film festivals.

Sanctuary, directed by Len Collins, is an adaptation of the theatre play of the same name by Christian O’Reilly about a group of young people with intellectual disabilities who go on a day trip to Galway. Two of the gang are a couple, and plan some alone time in a local hotel.

... The film was premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier this month, where it won the Best Irish First Feature award ...
