Event description

Description

Welcome to Superfest International Disability Film Festival!

Superfest International Disability Film Festival is the longest running disability film festival in the world. Since it first debuted in a small Los Angeles showcase in 1970, it has become an eagerly anticipated international event—co-produced by San Francisco's Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University.

For more than 30 festivals, Superfest has celebrated cutting-edge cinema that portrays disability through a diverse, complex, unabashed and engaging lens. Superfest is one of the few festivals worldwide that is accessible to disabled filmgoers of all kinds.

All films will be presented with captioning and audio-description and all live dialogue will be available with American Sign Language and live captioning. $12 for one Saturday screening, $20 for all-day Saturday pass.
