Live Announcement of the 2019 Easterseals Disability Film Challenge Finalists
Join us for a special Live Announcement of the 2019 Easterseals Disability Film Challenge Finalists. Finalists in four award categories will be revealed via Facebook Live from the theater, followed by an exclusive screening of the finalists’ films.
The Easterseals Disability Film Challenge gives filmmakers — with and without disabilities — the opportunity to collaborate to tell unique stories that showcase disability in its many forms. In this annual filmmaking competition, filmmakers are given 55 hours to create a short film that features someone with a disability in front of or behind the camera. Films are judged by a panel of noted and diverse entertainment industry professionals, and top prizes for this year’s winning teams include mentorship meetings with John Penotti (Producer, Crazy Rich Asians) and Academy Award-winner Phil Lord (Writer & Producer, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), as well as production grants, Dell computers, a full, one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud and film festival screening opportunities.
