Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival

the 17th Annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival & CTDFF: Online!

October 16 - 18, 2020

As Texas' preeminent disability-themed film festival, Cinema Touching Disability celebrates films that illustrate how people with disabilities lead both ordinary and extraordinary lives. Popular, well established and respected, Cinema Touching Disability has been honored with numerous media awards.

CTD has designed a program of sponsorship opportunities to appeal to a variety of partners. In addition to the specific menu of benefits including Film Fest website, e-newsletter, event program, and social media acknowledgement, sponsors will receive recognition in the CTD Messenger (circulation 5,000), a statewide e-newsletter highlighting current disabilities issues and events reaching people with disabilities, their family members and caretakers, and the organizations and agencies that serve them.

CTD is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Sponsorships support this excellent public awareness event and the ongoing disability advocacy work of CTD.
