ReelAbilities 2013 coming soon

ReelAbilitiesBOSTON 2012 debuts
REELAbilitiesBOSTON Film Festival was a big success with hundreds of people attending, helping to foster greater awareness of those with disabilities.
The Festival showcased six films in a one-week period in February – My Spectacular Theatre from China, War Eagle, Arkansas, Shooting Beauty, Snow Cake, Warrior Champions and Anita from Argentina.
One of the key goals of ReelAbilitiesBOSTON was to educate people and broaden their perspective about those with disabilities. Based on feedback received, we achieved our goal of uniting the entire community around this issue through film.
More than 700 people the Festival! Many attending had never been to a film sponsored by The Boston Jewish Film Festival.
We want to thank all who attended the festival and/or helped by promoting the movies. Many disabilities organizations were particularly supportive of ReelAbilitiesBOSTON. We especially applaud the efforts of J.E. & Z.B. Butler Foundation, Ruderman Family Foundation, the Cambridge Trust Co., the Saul Schottenstein Foundation B and the Nancy Lurie Marks Foundation for helping to make a dream a reality.
See you in 2013 for the second edition of ReelAbilitiesBoston Film Festival.
