The Easterseals Disability Film Challenge gives filmmakers—with and without disabilities—the opportunity to collaborate to tell unique stories that showcase disability in its many forms.
The film challenge is a weekend-long competition in which filmmakers write, produce and complete an original three-to-five minute films. Filmmaking teams receive an assigned genre along with a list of required props and locations.
Teams are strongly encouraged to integrate story elements that acknowledge disability and include at least one person with a physical or cognitive disability.
