Prosopagnosia at SQIFF 2021

My short animated documentary Prosopagnosia will be screening at the Scottish Queer International Film Festival 2021 on Saturday 9 October in Glasgow. This is one of my favourite festivals and my previous film Dix Pix screened in 2019. This is also the first in person screening of Prosopagnosia.

I will also be talking at the Documentary Workshop on Sunday 9 October. Here I will present some ideas about identity in creative documentary and I will talk about making Prosopagnosia.

What it Feels Like and Dix Pix win awards at the Neurodivergent Film Festival 2021

The Neurodivergent Film Festival took place online on July 10 2021. I had two films screening at the festival – What It Feels Like and Dix Pix. I am very pleased to say that both of these films picked up awards at the festival!!!

What it Feels Like was a winner in the Self Determination Category.

Meanwhile Dix Pix won in the Free Form Category. Dix Pix had previously been nominated and shortlisted for awards at several film festivals, but this is the first win. This is sixth award that What it Feels Like has picked up and I am so pleased that both films are still screening several years after they were completed.

New Short Film ‘Prosopagnosia’

For the past few months I have been working on a new short animated documentary with the Scottish Documentary Institute. The title is Prosopagnosia and will have its Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this weekend. The trailer is below along with a synopsis.

Prosopagnosia – Trailer from Steven Fraser on Vimeo.

Synopsis – Prosopagnosia is a story of identity that uses expressive animation to investigate intimacy, communication and memory.

Prosopagnosia is face-blindness and as a means of understanding this neurodiverse behaviour, the contents of a memory box are explored. Sketchbooks, photographs and diaries are intricately unraveled to tell a unique and personal story.
