Join us as we celebrate the launch of the 3rd Annual ReelAbilities Film Festival: Toronto, dedicated to showcasing disability and Deaf cultures through film.

The night begins with cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres at Toronto Reference Library in the Appel Salons at 7:00pm, with honoured guests, artists, filmmakers, and activists in attendance.
