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.
