Event description

Description

Join us for Superfest’s 31st year! Superfest is the longest running festival of its kind in the world, showcasing an innovative range of juried short films, organized by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University and the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco. It enriches the Bay Area by cultivating an event that celebrates disability as a generative and creative force in cinema and more broadly in culture.

Accommodations: In addition to ample space for wheelchairs; a friendly environment for service animals; and a scent-free environment; films will be audio described and captioned, ensuring a welcoming environment for people of all disabilities. ASL interpreting and live-captioning will be provided. For additional accommodation requests, please contact Emily Beitiks at 415.405.3528.

The inside of the square is made up of multicolored horizontal lines—magenta, green, yellowish green, orange, and blue—with the words Production, Director, Camera, Date, Scene written in color pencil, on separate lines. Above the clapboard is a background of white and light blue suggesting a sky. The words 31 Superfest International Disability Film Festival are written over the background sky.
