ReelAbilities Film Festival, the largest film festival in the United States dedicated to sharing the human experience of disability through art and film, is coming back to Chicago October 4-8, 2017 – stay tuned!

Our inaugural festival took place from September 9 – 13, 2015.  Hundreds of Chicagoans joined us at locations around the city to see amazing films by and about people with disabilities, along with engaging panel discussions, guest speakers, exhibitions, and performances.  All events were FREE to the public.

Stay up-to-date on what’s around the corner by liking us on Facebook. We look forward to seeing you at a future event!
