Description

Join us as we celebrate the launch of the 4th annual ReelAbilities Film Festival: Toronto, dedicated to showcasing Disability and Deaf cultures through film.

The night begins with cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres at Artscape Daniels Launchpad at 7:00pm, with honoured guests, artists, filmmakers, and activists in attendance.

Following the screening we will be joined via video-conference by special guests from the feature film.

The exciting documentary Intelligent Lives launches the 3rd Annual Festival.

From award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes Intelligent Lives, a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America. Three pioneering young adults with intellectual disabilities — Micah, Naieer, and Naomie — challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce.

Thank you to our community partners for co-presenting Intelligent Lives, Inclusive Education Canada and Community Living Toronto. And to our RAFFTO 2019 partner, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

Thank you to our venue partner, Daniels Launchpad. And to our sponsor, Blyth Cowbell Brewing Co.
