The Peanut Butter Falcon is a new film starring Zack Gottsagen, Shia LaBeouf and Dakota Johnson. Zack, who has a learning disability, plays the film's lead character, Zak.
We've worked with Signature Entertainment for the release of the film to promote learning disability and inclusivity in the film industry.
Take a look at some of the exciting things we've been able to do for the release of this film on this page.
When Harry met Zack and Shia

Having more people with a learning disability in films and on television helps to raise awareness, as well as reducing stigma and discrimination.
Hidden disabilities will only become more visible if they are played by real people in films.
It also allows people with a learning disability, like me, to express ourselves. It also increases the number of people with a learning disability in employment, as it will allow them to have a job.
- Harry Roche, film critic
Mencap ambassadors joined the stars of the film for the UK premiere of The Peanut Butter Falcon at BFI's London Film Festival in London on 3 October.
Film critics with a learning disability, Harry Roche and Ciara Lawrence, also joined fellow critics on the red carpet to interview the actors and crew of the film.
