The ReelAbilities Film Festival: Los Angeles is a three-day festival dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories, and artistic expressions of people with disabilities.
Visit us for a family-friendly Sunday Funday event! We’ll start the day with superhero themed shorts hosted by the EasterSeals Disability Film Challenge. Hang out on the grass, check out the food trucks, and join us for a dance party between showings of Finding Nemo and Poppy.
Our final event of the festival is sure to go for the gold as we premiere a never-before-seen episode of Rising Phoenix: Tokyo. We’ll wrap our 5th ReelAbilities Film Festival with a special panel that highlights the series filmmaker, Paralympians, and surprise guests.
The Department on Disability offers ASL interpretation and CART (Communication Access Real-time Translation) services for introductions, post-screening conversations, and non-film programming. The festival venue is wheelchair accessible and all films are presented with full audio description and captioning.
