Entrants--with or without a disability--are given 55 hours to make a three-to-five-minute film based on an assigned genre that will showcase disability in its many forms, expand the audience’s understanding of disability today, and inspire people to join the conversation. Sign up today and join in this opportunity to bring awareness of the disability community through filmmaking and storytelling.

Start: 04/04/2017 - 2:30pm
End: 04/04/2017 - 4:30pm

 

Prepare for the 2017 Easterseals Disability Film Challenge with Founder Nic Novicki and directors, actors, writers, crew members and more from the New York disability community, the New York film community and the New York disability film community. Learn more about the process of making a film over a 55-hour weekend, receive advice and tips from Nic, and network and collaborate with other attendees. Filmmakers will have the opportunity to recruit talented cast members and crew for their film, so bring your own team or create a new one during the meetup.
