ReelAbilities Film Festival
ReelAbilities is the premier international film festival dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories, and artistic expressions of people with disabilities. ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York is the largest disability-themed film festival in the world. It is based at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, and screenings are held in various locations throughout the New York metropolitan area. The award-winning films presented during this festival include feature-length and short films created by and/or featuring talented individuals with disabilities. Post-film conversations and other engaging panels and special programs bring the community together to explore, discuss, and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.
ReelAbilities strives to include all people. ReelAbilities presents all films with open captions, and all venues are wheelchair accessible. The JCC offers CART at every event and Audio Description for every film. ASL interpretation and information in braille are available upon request.
ReelAbilities is made possible with the generous support of our community. For a complete list of supporters, please visit reelabilities.org/newyork/partners.
