Join the CCAC and the Arc for an evening of films that inspire audiences, promote inclusion, and support transformative filmmaking as an integral part of social change. This unique event, which focuses exclusively on films that celebrate the diverse lives and creativity of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), strives to challenge assumptions and breakdown stereotypes. By introducing powerful, thought-provoking films from around the world to new and ever-more inclusive audiences, the Sprout Film Festival’s hope to promote greater acceptance, celebrate difference and light the spark to help make the invisible, visible.
The Sprout Film Festival was founded in 2003 and is programmed and supported by Sprout, a New York City based non-profit organization dedicated to bringing innovative programming to individuals with I/DD. Today, their touring festivals bring these important films all over the United States.
