DACP’s biannual Portland ReelAbilities Disability Film Festival is coming up in the spring of 2018. ReelAbilities is a national organization dedicated to sharing the stories, lives and art of people with disabilities. It consists of award-winning films of the highest cinematic and artistic quality and is hosted in cities across the country including Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Boston, Houston and many more. We are excited to bring these films back to Portland!

We need YOUR help – volunteer with our planning committee to be a part of this important event!
