Short Film Challenge Raising Awareness of Disabilities
On April 23-24th, filmmakers participated in the Easterseals’ Disability Film Challenge — a competition in which they wrote, produced and completed original 3-5 minute films. The filmmaking teams receive an assigned genre along with a list of required props and locations.
The film crews were strongly encouraged to integrate story elements that acknowledged disability and included at least 1 person with a physical or cognitive disability.
Finalists in the Challenge will be announced on May 11th and the winners on May 18th.

A few examples are shown below, including a short film directed by one of RDR’s BFF’s BFF, Eileen Grubba.
