About the Organizers

The JFS Houston Alexander Institute for Inclusion is proud to be the host city organizer for the ReelAbilities Houston since its inception.

With the leadership of the institute the Festival has grown to become a multimedia film and arts festival whose impact is felt throughout the year. ReelAbilities is presented to the City of Houston as a gift from the JFS Houston Alexander Institute for Inclusion.

The JFS Houston Alexander Institute for Inclusion shines a light on the lives and aspirations of individuals with disabilities in our city and beyond. We seek to lower stigmas and increase access for individuals with disabilities in the workplace, places of faith and communal organizations through direct service, education, arts and advocacy.
