Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival

November 1- 2, 2013


Each year, the Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival strives to challenge viewers to examine the portrayal of people with disabilities in film - to challenge negative stereotypes and to champion realistic portrayals of people with disabilities as fully dignified human beings with the potential to live full and productive lives.

The short film competition is your opportunity to share your view of disability with the Cinema Touching Disability audience. We want interesting, imaginative, and creative representations of disability on film.  All filmmakers, including professional independent filmmakers, amateur filmmakers, and secondary and university students of all ages are invited to submit their own representations of disability in a short film.

Submission for the 2013 short film competition is closed. Stay tuned for updates about submitting to the 2014 short film competition.
