This year’s festival is July 7-10 and will showcase films from across the globe in venues throughout Over-The-Rhine, a historic neighborhood where people from diverse backgrounds gather to shop, see art, and find community in downtown Cincinnati.
 

The theme for the 2022 festival is “See the Story, Be the Story.” This call for empathy, togetherness and personal storytelling activates the festival’s mission of bringing together films and film makers with diverse points of view to celebrate difference and honor our shared humanity. Untold stories are the heart of this festival. As an organization routed in the intersectionality and diversity of the disability community, we truly believe that every person, every body has a story worth telling. Our 2022 festival theme touches on the importance of seeing reflections of your own story in film and media.

We look forward to seeing you there!
