JFS Houston presents ReelAbilities Film and Arts Festival
ReelAbilities Film and Arts Festival, a city-wide film festival promoting inclusion and celebrating the lives and talents of people living with disabilities, returns for its sixth year. This event will feature a speaker series, live music jam session, art exhibit, educational tours to local schools and seminars at local offices, to educate the community and to help change perceptions about individuals with varying levels of abilities.
The film portion of the festival will screen movies and feature interactive panels to encourage audience discussion. ReelArt, a gallery exhibit at the Center for Art and Photography at Celebration Company, will kick off the festival and stay on display throughout the 11-day festival. ReelMusic, an all-inclusive jazz and blues music jam, will showcase professional musicians who will invite artists with disabilities to perform to close the festival. ReelPeople: UP Abilities is a series of intellectually-stimulating discussions with three thought leaders from across the world.
