The ReelAbilities NY Disabilities Film Festival was initiated at the JCC in Manhattan, in 2007. The festival was the first of its kind to present award- winning films by and about people with disabilities. Screenings took place at multiple venues throughout the city and they were followed by discussions that brought together the community to explore, discuss, embrace, and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.
In 2012, Columbus became the 13th city to host the ReelAbilities NY Disabilities Film Festival. VSA Ohio, the statewide organization on arts and disability has presented 4 full festivals and numerous promotional screenings with an array of regional partners. ReelAbilities Columbus now has film screening events in the fall and spring of each year.
November's Screening: MAD TO BE NORMAL
David Tennant stars as R.D. Laing, the controversial psychiatrist who most famously treated patients diagnosed as “mentally disturbed” with LSD. His radical methods outraged the 1960s and ‘70s London medical community, but they also led to a dramatic adjustment in attitudes toward mental illness around the world. Also stars Elisabeth Moss, Gabriel Byrne, and Michael Gambon.
