Accessible Writers' Lab: Case Study Report

Hosted by ReelAbilities Film Festival Toronto

Reelabilities Film Festival Toronto is thrilled to announce the launch of the Accessible Writers’ Lab 2022 Edition Case Study Report! The Accessible Writers’ Lab was a national program experimenting with what an accessible TV writers room might look like, focusing on collective accessibility, knowledge sharing, and working to create pathways for disabled creatives to thrive in the Canadian television industry. On March 30 at 12pm EDT, you are cordially invited to join a webinar presentation focusing on key learnings from the Accessible Writers’ Lab report, led by Creative Director Ophira Calof, and made possible with the support of the Writers’ Guild of Canada.


Registration is required for this event. If you have any questions about this program, feel free to reach out to accessiblewriterslab@gmail.com.

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.
