Deaf filmmakers are in the spotlight this weekend.

The second annual Deaf Film Festival gives filmmakers a chance to showcase their work.

The films are showing at several locations. A Sundance Film Festival winner, ‘Hear and Now’ is sold out Friday night.

The films all take on issues that are central to deaf culture. ‘A lot of the movies show the deaf experience- what it’s like to be deaf, what important values are,’ said Katie Schmitz of the festival. ‘What makes deaf films different, and I think that’s part of what the festival is all about, to show some of that evolutionary process, development.’
