The ReelAbilities NY Disabilities Film Festival was initiated at the JCC in Manhattan in 2007. The festival was the first of its kind to present award- winning films by and about people with disabilities. Screenings took place at multiple venues throughout the city and they were followed by discussions that brought together the community to explore, discuss, embrace, and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.
In 2012, Cincinnati, Ohio was the first city to follow in New York’s footsteps by hosting a ReelAbilities Film Festival. Since then, the festival has spread to over a dozen cities in North America, and we have received more than 500 films for consideration submitted from across the globe. In 2014, the festival’s national headquarters moved to Cincinnati where it is being managed by a nonprofit, Living Arrangements for Developmentally Disabled (LADD), Inc.
Regular ticket prices to screenings are $12. To ensure the festival is financially accessible, community tickets for students, seniors, and those on fixed incomes are $8. Tickets can be purchased in person at TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King St. W.), daily from 10am-10pm, over the phone at 416-599-8433, 10am-7pm, and online at our box office.
