Short description of the selection

The 11th edition of the DisABILITY Filmfestival introduces you with 11 outstanding movies, 3 of which were in last year‘s programme, but, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, were cancelled. Considering the current situation we decided to go partly online this year, so that we could invite as many people as possible to celebrate with us.

The new selection of movies invites you to face the power of people having to deal with certain disabilities. They might be met with various stereotypes from their surroundings, but that doesn‘t stop them from achieving their goals or fighting for justice. On top of the movie screenings, the program contains multiple lectures. In both the films and the other events, thinking about how we can do better is a focal point.

Our organisation

How do we work?

The DisABILITY Film Festival wants to challenge the existing image of people with disabilities. Disabled people are not always dependent. Their lives are not all doom and gloom. Starting from this belief, the festival wants to offer a platform to people with disabilities, to work together towards a more nuanced imaging. With the movie screenings, documentaries and workshops we organise, we mean to take a first step in the right direction.

We'd love to help
