ReelAbilities Film Festival Runs April 29 - May 5
ReelAbilities was founded in 2007 by the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan. The dedicated programming of the festival is promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with disabilities. The mission is to bring together community to discuss, explore, embrace and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.
The week long festival includes in-person and virtual venues. Queens Drive-In at New York Hall of Science for opening night, April 29, Virtual Events, and Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan are planned meeting places for this 2021 festival.
The festival strives to include everyone. All festival venues are wheelchair accessible and films are presented with open captions. The JCC offers CART, a live transcription at every event for introductions, post-screening conversations and non-filming programming. ASL interpretation will be available at many events, Audio description is available for some features and short films and the festival catalog is available in Braille. You are encouraged to contact the box office with any of your requested accessibility accommodations.
