The purpose of the "Reflection of disability in art" Festival is to highlight art through the perspective of disability. The idea starts from the inalienable right of people with disabilities to express themselves through art either amateur or professional. The festival is meant to reflect the skills of people with disabilities and the opportunities that each society has to provide to each individual, contributing to the cultural identity of the individual and society.

  • Rodi is a fantastic festival for highlighting disability issues – an read that is largely ignored by society and the media. I was happy to have one of my projects showcased there. I would strongly recommend filmmakers (and even viewers) interested in disability issues to look out for this festival.
