Project Dis/Play

Hosted by ReelAbilities Film Festival Toronto, Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNjcc)

Dis/Play is a public art project that shines a light on disabled folks of all ages telling their own stories, woven into a multi-media display that will be projected onto building walls in the streets of Toronto later this year in partnership with the ReelAbilities Film Festival of Toronto/Miles Nadal JCC, as part of ArtworxTO: Toronto's Year of Public Art 2021–2022.

We are seeking:

  1. Visual content to be used in the projections, e.g. photographs, selfies, videos, digital artwork, scans of visual art and more (the first 55 submissions will be eligible for an honorarium) - deadline July 30th
  2. Submissions for spotlit storytellers - deadline July 7th

For both streams, we'd like you to respond to this prompt: How do you want to be seen?

In 2016, the American-born ReelAbilities Film festival crossed the border and launched in Toronto, Ontario, making this the first official international chapter of RAFF. Now in our fourth year, ReelAbilities Toronto Film Festival is proud to showcase Canadian and International shorts, features, and documentaries about Deaf and disability cultures and by filmmakers and actors with disabilities and/or who are Deaf. Over the past 4 years, ReelAbilities Film Festival Toronto has launched programs alongside producing the festival in the spring of each year. Programs such as the ReelAccess/CinemAccessible Guide and the CBC-ReelAbilities Breaking Barriers Film Fund have helped build this Toronto festival into a mainstay of the city’s disability and cinematic fabric! Our ReelEducation program has brought films and lesson plans about equity and inclusion into 118 schools across the province, in 28 schoolboards.
