The Abilities Arts Festival Presents “Insights” Film Forums

Three compelling and entertaining evenings of award winning films that celebrate diversity and disability.

Bold, beautiful, hard-hitting, and moving feature films, documentaries and shorts provide the back-drop for entertaining and empowering evenings of film, discussion and fun.  Each forum combines the screening of a treasure trove of international, award-winning films, with lively, thought-provoking and at times provocative Q and A’s with filmmakers, plus a post-show reception where film-makers and audiences can meet mingle and chat.

When: September 20th, September 27th, October 4th Where: The Al Green Theatre
750 Spadina Avenue
(South West Corner of Bloor and Spadina)


Kissing that Frog: Disabling the Perfection Myth   

Through folktales and personal stories around disability, Kim Kilpatrik and Alan Shain will evoke laughter as well as sadness, pain as well as discovery. They will bring the myth of perfection into much sharper, in fact almost perfect, focus. Is that frog really much better off as a prince?

Is Half-Boy happier with a second arm and leg? Should we all be more careful of what we wish for? Warning: You may find yourself running out to kiss that frog… and with joy!
Admission: Free

When: Sunday April 6th, 4:15 – 5:15
Where: Studio Theatre, Harbour Front
