DisABILITY Film Festival
The 12th edition of the DisABILITY Filmfestival will take place from the 9th till the 13th of May.
This year, we are on a quest to find out what makes us different - and if we are that different after all. Taste in music, style, travelling or hobbies, they're just a few of the things people use to stand out - that make us who we are. Nevertheless, it's all too often the things we struggle with that cause us to feel or be seen as different.
In this years films and lectures we explore the boundaries of being different: the thin line between self-interest and altruism, conservatism and trying new things, between fearing the 'other' and learning to love our differences. More than ever, we're trying to do this together - overcoming our fears, embracing our own and the others differences.
Being different in our togetherness - that's our 12th editions focal point. Curious, eager to help out or just craving a good movie? Be sure to check out our program, sign up for one of the movies or events or to reach out!
Everything you should know for a succesful movie night
The 12th edition of the Leuven DisABILITY Film festival takes place from Monday the 9th of May till Friday the 13th of May 2022.
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 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 went online. In order to increase the DisABILITY Filmfestival's visibility in Flanders and enable more people to attend the filmfestival we decided to create a parallel streaming-circuit for Flemish institutions for persons with a disability.
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 email@example.com. This should be done at least one week beforehand!
