Atlantic Canada's Only Film Festival Showcasing the Unique Contributions of disAbility Culture

 

Atlantic Canada's First Disability film festival

Taking place in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia, The Bluenose-Ability Film Festival is Atlantic Canada’s first disability film festival. BAFF encourages participation of persons with disabilities in a media event that honours and celebrates the unique contributions of the growing disability arts and culture movement. Aiming to be the Canadian leader in disability focused arts and culture, we’re dedicated to showcasing professional films as well as promoting youth/first-time filmmaker participation. Our goal is to showcase innovative and provocative works from both seasoned filmmakers and emerging media arts professionals from Atlantic Canada and around the world.

We are dedicated to showcasing professional films as well as promoting youth (first-time filmmaker) participation. The second annual Bluenose-Ability Film Festival will take place from December 2nd through December 4th, 2016. Our Awards ceremony and gala will take place on December 3rd, United Nations' International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Be sure to join us at the VIP Panels, Film-Making Workshops and Specialized screenings taking place over the weekend!

Last year we received over 2000 submissions from over 80 countries worldwide! Join us in this international celebration of disability culture. As part of our expanded partnership with Halifax International Airport Authorty, the Nova Scotia Department of Culture and regional high schools BAFF awarded films were screened to over 1 000 000 people!

reachAbility would like to thank all those who supported the inaugural Bluenose-Ability Film Festival (BAFF). The support and energy of filmmakers who participated in the competition; our community partners and associations; our Sponsors; regional, national and international media; and the public all played an integral part in making BAFF 2015 an outstanding success!

 We look forward to your continued support as we move into the future. Plans are in the works for the continued expansion of the festival over the coming years, as we seek to offer a venue for filmmakers to share the voices of disability culture – across Canada and around the world.
