Short description of the selection

The 12th edition of the DisABILITY Filmfestival introduces you 8 outstanding movies and documentaries. Considering the Corona-experience of last year we decided to continue our stream-format but also screen the movies again on site!

The final evening of our 12th edition is all about the winners of our very first short film competition. In total we received more than 1000 entries. A professional jury led by Sahim Omar Kalifa will select three short films from all entries that have a chance to win our first DFF Awards. Wondering who will receive the prize of the professional jury and the audience prize? Then sign up quickly!

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 inclusion of persons with disabilities is crucial.

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
