ATLANTIC CANADA'S ONLY DISABILITY FILM FESTIVAL

 

reachAbility Association is proud to announce the Third Annual Bluenose-Ability Film Festival (BAFF), Atlantic Canada's first and only disability focused film festival for adults and youth, happening Thursday, November 30th through Sunday, December 3rd, 2017. We are excited to announce our theme this year’s festival; Celebrating 150 Years of Diversity, in honor of Canada's 150 Years of Confederation.

The Bluenose-Ability Film Festival showcases the diverse contributions of both experienced and first-time filmmakers, while providing a powerful platform to create an open dialogue about disAbility and mental health, to raise awareness on the topics, and to give a voice to those traditionally underserved and misrepresented by mainstream media outlets. Through partnerships with local schools and youth groups in the HRM, BAFF also strongly encourages youth engagement in the growing disAbility arts and culture movement by implementing a year round Future Film-makers Program developed to inspire a new generation of film-makers for years to come.

With submissions from more than 80 countries and over 1 million in viewership worldwide, join us in this international celebration of disability culture.
