Thank you for joining us!
What a delight to see so many friends, old and new, at this year’s Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival! Our long-time partners, the Alamo Drafthouse, welcomed us back to the theater for our first in-person Festival since 2019 (below, left).
Despite a broken projector on Saturday night, we had a great time last weekend, watching our 6 international short film competition winners, this year's feature films, IMPERFECT and CRUTCH, and all the great performances from BodyShift (above, right), TILT, and Bill Shannon!
Have feedback for us from this year's Fest? Our Audience Survey is still open.
