On November 9th at the Main Library, Art Possible Ohio will be presenting a program of ReelAbilities short films. This year we will select one Ohio made short film to include in the program. We can't wait to see what the Ohio filmmaking community has to offer.
In 2012, Columbus became the 13th city to host the ReelAbilities NY Disabilities Film Festival. VSA Ohio, the statewide organization on arts and disability has presented 4 full festivals and numerous promotional screenings with an array of regional partners.

The winning film will screen with our selection of ReelAbilities short films.
