At Ability Foundation, it has always been our passion to bridge the divide between persons with and without disabilities and sensitise people at large. AbilityFest – a celebration on celluloid – began with this intent.
AbilityFest – India International Disability Film Festival is a bi-annual event. It presents a unique and inspiring showcase of extraordinary films from around the world. Films by with and about people with disabilities, AbilityFest is an international, high profile event bringing to the fore the philosophy of an inclusive society. The need for universal access is underlined in every aspect of the festival: from captioned as well as audio described films to accessible venues.
