Mark your calendars for next year’s ReelAbilities Disabilities Film Festival which is being held March 8-14th of 2018.

This will be our third year being sponsors of ReelAbilities which we are looking forward to continuing to support this amazing film festival.

We’ve had some great experiences while being there not only as sponsors but also as press.

We managed to see amazing films that spark so much conversation and really shows how we all can relate back to film festivals that are shown there no matter what your abilities are.

Human Rights Watch Film Festival is currently going on all this week. Tomorrow or more like today here in New York City the disability community is being represented by Human Right Film Festival in partnership with ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival which will be coming up next year is showing The Grown Ups film which is about a couple with Down Syndrome. 

I’m pleased to see ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival has partnered up with Human Rights Watch Film Festival. The film itself is being shown at IFC Theater and Lincoln Center. Please go and see this movie! 

Don’t miss out on their other films that are apart of Human Rights Watch Film Festival.

Day 6 was filled with two amazing films. The first film of the night is called My Feral Heart which was brilliantly done and it didn’t focus on what people with disabilities couldn’t do but what they can do. It is one film we both enjoyed greatly. Please check out the film because it is beautifully done and we want to see it get worldwide attention and distribution. 

Then we went to an industry event which William H. Macy, Maysoon Zayid, RJ Mitte, and along with two casting directors. Their panel was very informative and then they also allowed the audience to ask questions which lead to AMCPress&Co’s James Barmiker to ask one question which was How many actors were in a scene of Shameless which aired this past year then the rest of the panel interjected with comments which raised more questions to Mr. Macy’s comment. James question was more of a casting question which should’ve been asked for to the two casting agents that were present. The panel was great and very informative. 

Then the last film of the night is called View From Tall which is a coming of age film about a young woman who had a relationship with an authority figure who worked at her high school and she developed a friendship with her therapist. The film is highly recommended to see since it is beautifully directed.
