About the film competition

Our Too Much Information film showed just one experience of autism. We invited aspiring filmmakers, film students and professional filmmakers to create original short films, to shed light on the real world of autism – uncensored and uncut – to help more people understand autism, the person and what to do.

We asked people to submit films about anything to do with the world of autism (up to four minutes long). This may include showing how unexpected changes or social anxiety feel for autistic people, or how sensory overload can affect everyday life. For our first ever Autism Uncut awards, launched in 2016 and celebrated at the glamorous BAFTA-held ceremony in April 2017, we received an overwhelming response to the competition. From a huge number of autistic people sharing their perspective and unique talents, to family members, and production companies working with autistic people to communicate their experience – our judges had a broad range of films to narrow down.
