In it's 7th consecutive year NOVA Employment ran the 2015 Focus on Ability Short Film Festival. The competition is aimed at raising awareness of the abilities of people with a disability. The theme for the competition asks film makers to 'Focus on the Ability' of people with a disability. The competition culminates in an awards night held in Sydney where entrants will have the chance to feel like Scorsese and see their films premiered on the big screen as well as the chance to have their film shown on national television. Films are judged by a professional judging panel and put through an online voting process, with separate prizes for each category.
