Short movie S.A.M.

DUE TO THE NEW CORONAGUIDELINES THE LECTURE BY KAROLIEN DEBECKER HAS BEEN CANCELLED. YOU CAN STILL REGISTER FOR THE SCREENING OF THE SHORT MOVIE S.AM.

In this public lecture, radio and television host Karolien Debecker openly talks about her personal experience with living with an impairment. She also discusses the media’s quest for a humane imaging of disability, and gives her stance on an ideal representation. There will be room for questions and discussion afterwards.

Prior to Karolien Debecker's lecture, the short film S.A.M. will be screened. This short film won the Holebikort 2020 price during the last edition of the LGBTQ film festival (which unfortunately was canceled due to the Corona crisis).

The short film S.A.M. captures in an intimate and poignant way the nascent relationship between a boy with Down syndrome from a wealthy background and a 'normal' boy from a poor neighborhood. The fact that the film consists almost exclusively of shots of the two boys sitting on a swing, makes the whole even more memorable. Curious? Then be sure to register for this film.

The screening of S.A.M. is co-organized by the Holebifilmfestival!

DisABILITY Filmfestival 2022: #Grenzeloos anders #unboudedly together

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
