Georgia Community Support and Solutions announces its first annual film festival October 1-6, 2011 at venues across metro Atlanta. This film festival will promote the appreciation and understanding of individuals living with different disabilities. Lynne M. and Howard I. Halpern will host and co-present the film festival, which will include ten films featuring or made by people with disabilities.
The ReelAbilities Film Festival was founded in New York and was designed to change the public's attitude toward people who have diverse disabilities. ReelAbilities ATL is continuing the success, by using the power of film to focus on people living with disabilities from across the globe. To meet the goal of building community through film, ReelAbilities ATL has already established partnerships with 23 Atlanta community organizations. After each screening, there will be discussions with actors, experts, and filmmakers exploring the awareness of disabilities.
The complete festival schedule will be available in late August. Tickets will go on sale by September 1st. For more information please contact Judy Marx at (404) 634-4222, ext 267 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
