ReelAbilities Film Festival Toronto showcases disability and Deaf cultures through film, and the art and talent of artists with disabilities and Deaf artists.
RAFF has taken several measures to ensure that the festival is as accessible as possible to audience members of all abilities.
• All festival venues used by RAFF are fully wheelchair accessible and companion seating is available.
• All films will screen with open captioning and/or subtitles.
• American Sign Language interpreters and CART will be present at select screenings, panels, and where requested by individuals.
• Any person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will receive a free ticket for his or her support person.
• Service animals are welcome.
