The 17th Annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival & CTDFF: Online!

Wrapping up 2020 at Cinema Touching Disability

Like so much in 2020, the 17th annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival was not quite the same as in previous years—but it still happened! We are proud of the program we delivered, and grateful for the support of our sponsors and audience.

While we missed the camaraderie and energy (and milkshakes) that we’ve enjoyed year after year at the Alamo Drafthouse, the CTDFF: Online! short film showcase and the 17th annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival were truly great events in their own right. Our 2020 Wrap Up has all the details!

Plus, check out all of the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities' work in our 2020 Annual Summary!

The 2021 Cinema Touching Disability Short Film Competition is open! Through the end of the year, our submission fee is only $20! It goes up to $40 Jan. 1, 2021, so check out this year's rules and submit soon! 2021 deadline is August 2, 2021.


Thank you to our 2020 CTDFF Sponsors!
