Introduction

DisABILITY Film Festival

The 11th edition of the DisABILITY Filmfestival will take place from the 3rd to the 8th of May. Considering the current situation, the festival is going partly online, giving the possibility to the wider audience to participate in our events.

We are very excited to introduce you to our new slogan: „Yes, we cam“, which, we believe, will empower people to fight for their dreams. It is easy to underestimate someone who does not look or behave according to what are considered the norms of our society. This year‘s movie selection introduces powerful people who try to overcome every obstacle in order to achieve their goals. Even though they might lack certain knowledge or capabilities, they are determined to battle all the stereotypes and simply do what they love, or what they believe in.

We are striving for equality and for everyone having the chance to show their passion. People that are believed to be weaker have to fight not only with themselves, but also with all these stereotypes surrounding their capabilities. That does not only show their strength, but also proves that they are stronger than most of the people that don’t even have to face similar problems. This year’s edition is exactly about that, about abilities and capabilities.

We invite you to celebrate our 11th birthday with us by attending film screenings and lectures!

Practical information

Everything you should know for a succesful movie night

The 11th edition of the Leuven DisABILITY Film festival takes place from Monday the 3rd of May till Saturday the 8th of May 2021.

Be careful: the screenings, workshops and lectures all start at varying hours, so check the specific starting hour of the event you want to attend! The same goes for the location: the Leuven DisABILITY Film Festival is organised at multiple locations. The opening lecture and screening on Monday take place in Kinepolis Leuven. The other screenings take place either in Provinciehuis Vlaams-Brabant or the Leuven Public Library (Bibliotheek Tweebronnen). The Leuven DisABILITY Film Festival is a free event. You do not have to pay to attend a screening or to participate in any of the events. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak the 11th edition of the festival goes partly online. It means that it wil be able to watch movies online in case all places to live screenings will be taken. The organizers of theDisABILITY Film Festival do everything they can to make this initiative as accessible as possible.

When registering for a screening, you'll be asked if you want to make use of any of our accesibility accomodations. If you have any input on how to ameliorate the festival's accesibility, do not hesitate to contact us.

Via the Mobiliteitscentrale Aangepast Vervoer (MAV) of the province of Vlaams-Brabant, wheelchair users can apply for free transport. If you want to make use of this, you can call to 0800/26990 (free) or send an e-mail to mobiliteitscentrale@vlaamsbrabant.be. This should be done at least one week beforehand!
