World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD), the annual campaign that promotes the industry’s involvement and support of ‘Autism Friendly Screenings’ (AFS), returns this Saturday, 2 April 2016. 

Cinemas across the country have already started to host AFS, which will continue to run until Sunday 10 April. With support from autism support provider, Dimensions, and the UK’s leading autism charity, The National Autistic Society, these screenings will provide a further boost to the UK’s growing cinema audience of people with autism. 

Over 900 Autism Friendly Screenings will take place in the UK over this period, with more than 200 screenings taking place on WAAD itself.
