We invite you to experience film and video related to the field of developmental disabilities (including autism, Asperger's syndrome, Down syndrome and others). The SFF aims to raise the profile of subjects and performers with developmental disabilities by showcasing works of all genres featuring this population.

This year's selection includes over 50 films, representing 14 different countries. In addition to the film screenings, several directors, producers and cast members will attend the event for Q & A sessions. Complimentary coffee and desserts will be available to all attendees.

We are thrilled to offer a number of free museum events that will be presented by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. These will include guided museum tours and art-making activities. These activities are open to all festival attendees, including adults and children, and are particularly tailored to the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The museum activities will take place at the following times:

Saturday June 1st 11:00am – 12:00pm
Sunday June 2nd 11:00am – 12:00pm
Sunday June 2nd 2:30pm – 3:30pm

No bookings are required – simply meet at the Carroll Classroom in the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education 10 minutes prior to the start times listed. For groups larger than 10 people, please contact our office.
