Real Abilities Diversity and Inclusion Film Festival
The ReelAbilities Diversity and Inclusion Film Festival is dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with different abilities. The festival presents award-winning films, accompanied by discussions and other engaging programs which bring together the community to explore, discuss and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.
Kesem (“Magic” in Hebrew) is exactly what occurs when actors, both with and without needs, go through this theatrical process together. Under the direction of Brian Bassett, participants learn, grow and express themselves in ways they may never had imagined. In Kesem, the Weinstein JCC’s inclusive theater project, it is the process, more than the result, that is most important. The cast and crew of Kesem invite everyone to come and experience the magic of Kesem!
This year’s festival took place February 8-11, 2021. Thank you to everyone who participated!
