Reelabilities: Film Festival

reelability logoInitiated by The JCC in Manhattan in 2007, ReelAbilities presents award-winning films made by and about people with different disabilities—from autism to bipolar disorder, from cerebral palsy to blindness. Through film, ReelAbilities also reaches beyond the disability community and manages to bridge gaps by engaging film lovers and audiences from all walks of life.

The festival is part of a movement to bring awareness and enlightenment about people living and thriving with disabilities—building on the cultural shift that is no longer keeps disability behind Hollywood’s glittering lights. Michael J. Fox, a beloved actor with Parkinson’s disease, is acting in his own primetime network show; Showtime’s critically acclaimed hit show “Homeland” features Carrie, a CIA agent played brilliantly by Claire Danes, whose bipolar disorder offers her gifts and struggles; and more feature films than ever before, like those featured in ReelAbilities, explore how our differences make us strong.
