Superfest: International Disability Film Festival
Welcome to Superfest: International Disability Film Festival!
Superfest: International Disability Film Festival is a showcase of juried films held in San Francisco and Berkeley. What started as a small showcase in Los Angeles 30 years ago has grown into a sold-out international event. As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we continue to honor and celebrate the unique contributions of the growing disability arts and culture movement by exhibiting the most innovative and provocative works from both seasoned filmmakers and emerging media arts professionals.
We are one of the few festivals in the country that is completely accessible. All films will be presented with captioning and audio-description and all live dialogue will be available with American Sign Language and live captioning. Filmmakers are traveling from Israel, Italy, France, England, and Canada to participate in panels, engage with the audience, and accept awards.
