With nine films by filmmakers spanning four continents, Western Colorado University this week launches its inaugural Disability Film Festival—with a three-hour program airing virtually on Vimeo June 1 -30, 2020.

The festival is hosted by Western Colorado University’s Communication Arts, Film Studies and Education programs with the goal of raising awareness of triumphs within inclusive education.

“We believe there are issues related to social justice and lack of educational opportunity for students served in special education,” said Tara Mason, Western education department faculty member and festival co-creator. “We want to explore creative pedagogy that serves students within inclusive classroom environments using film as a launchpad for discussion, advocacy and change in special education.”

The program of films ranging from five to 45 minutes includes special features of Zoom interviews with Festival winners, selected by a jury of Western faculty members, in three categories: Best Short, Best Feature Length, and Best Social Justice and Inclusion. Festival viewers are invited to vote for their favorite film, which will be honored with the Viewer’s Choice award at the conclusion of the festival.

The films portray diverse perspectives on disability and how individuals overcome challenges in order to thrive. “A Touching Sight” portrays an Italian art exhibition that enables individuals with visual impairments to “see” abstract art through tactile and multi-sensory experiences. “Para Hikers” documents the journey of a determined team of five men with disabilities to hike to the top of an Indonesian mountain. “Upside” portrays Stephen, a young man with Down Syndrome wishing to gain independence.

  • Para Hiking” (Director: Fajrian Vedder)
  • “And They Were Roommates: Navigating Inclusive Mentorship in Higher Education” (Director: Kylie Walter)
  • “Nothing Down About It” (Director: Skyler DeYoung)
