Rethinking inclusion in the workplace

What if you were up for a job at a prestigious law firm and the person interviewing you had Down syndrome? Would it change your perception?

That’s the premise behind the short film, “The Interviewer.” Watch the film on VIMEO.

Thomas Howell gets more than he bargained for at an interview at a prestigious law firm – an insult about his tie, a rendition of Harry Potter, and the chance to change the lives of a father and son.

So far “The Interviewer” has won 30 international awards and screened at over 40 international film festivals. Bringing messages of social inclusion to audiences all over the world.

The inclusive film”‘The Interviewer” made in 2012 allowed 12 people with an intellectual disability from Bus Stop Films gain work experience and mentorship on set and, they also helped conceive and develop the film through workshops. Subsequently ,these students have represented the film at numerous high profile Australian film festivals including Flickerfest, the Human Rights and Arts Film Festival, Short Shorts Film Festival, St Kilda Film Festival, WOW film festival and the Gympie Heart of Gold Film Festival.
