  • BACKBONES, a local nonprofit serving people with disabilities, is hosting the ReelAbilities Film Festival Chicago on October 3-8, 2017. The festival is dedicated to sharing the human experience of disability through art and film. ReelAbilities will screen a variety of films, workshops, panels, and other arts programming at different venues in Chicago. The 2017 theme is "Lights, Camera, Take Action!" with the goal of mobilizing attendees to take action beyond the film by becoming involved in the community.

    The first ReelAbilities Chicago was hosted by BACKBONES in September 2015 and had the support of ADA25 Chicago, a city-wide initiative by Chicago Community Trust celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The five day festival offered free film screenings and arts programming accessible to people of all abilities.
