A collection of six engaging documentaries showcasing the fearless lives of six inspiring individuals will be released online from Thursday December 3rd , 2020 to mark the International Day of People with Disability.

Screenworks has again partnered with disability and aged care services provider Feros Care to create season 2 of Fearless; a funded film initiative designed to bring diversity and insight to our screens whilst supporting regional factual filmmakers to hone their craft.

The short films have been created by six independent filmmakers who live and work in regional Australia under the guidance of supervising producer Jenni Wilks, renowned for her work on acclaimed ABC series’ Love on the Spectrum and Employable Me.

Screenworks CEO Ken Crouch said the teams had worked tirelessly to ensure the series would premiere on the International Day of People with Disability 2020. “These regional filmmakers had to overcome a lot of challenges during their production schedules as a result of both COVID-19 and the bushfires, I think that each of these films are a testament to their determination to showcase these fearless people on the screen,”

Fearless holds a special place in the heart of Screenworks and the fact that audiences will be able to enjoy Fearless – Season 2 on such a landmark day for people with a disability is a credit to the films’ subjects who have been so willing to share their stories” said Mr. Crouch.

Fearless Films: Season Two will premiere online via Facebook on Thurs 3 Dec, 6.30pm – 7:30pm
(AEDT). The event will be hosted by actor Jacob Lorenzo and feature introductions from the filmmakers and subjects. All films are closed captioned and audio described versions are available.
