The ReelAbilities Houston Film & Arts Festival brings free programming to Houston-area schools to communicate the message of inclusion to thousands of our city's youth through film, speakers and discussions.
The goal of the Festival is to change perceptions, reduce stigmas and remove barriers for those living with disabilities – creating long-lasting impact in our community. To do this, it is imperative that we reach our city’s youth with the message of inclusion.
Throughout the week of February 7-11, 2022, ReelEducation will hold three events daily from 9:00-10:00 AM, 10:30-11:30 AM and 1:00-2:00 PM. A wide variety of film and program options, suitable for students from elementary school to high school, are available.
From feature-length movies to short films and documentaries to narratives, ReelAbilities Houston offers a wide variety of films for ReelEducation Programs. View all film options here.
ReelAbilities speakers include the filmmakers, protagonist, educators or individuals with disabilities to allow students to have an open dialogue on subjects addressed in the program. Creating space for students to ask questions and learn about people with disabilities helps create a more inclusive community and change perceptions.
ReelEducation programs can be customized to fit any age; from preschool to graduate level, all students benefit from the opportunity to think about their own perceptions and attitudes towards individuals with disabilities.
