JFilm and FISA will present the 2nd Annual ReelAbilities Pittsburgh Disabilities Film Festival on October 22, 26 and 30, 2014. The festival promotes awareness and appreciation of the lives and stories of people with different disabilities by showcasing award winning films by and about people with disabilities. Viewings of these films are enriched by post-screening discussions and programs to bring together the community to further explore and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.

In order to ensure the inclusion of all people, the venues for the ReelAbilities Film Festival have been chosen for their accessibility. Additionally, all films have open captions or subtitles and ASL interpretation and audio description available upon request. (If other accommodations are needed, please contact JFILM at 412-992-5203 or in advance, by Oct. 13 if possible.)
