by NYC Firm Schools on April 23, 2011

The 9th Annual Sprout Film Festival will take place this year on Friday April 29 – Sunday May 1 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The festival features video and film related to the field of developmental disabilities. The aim of the festival is to raise the profile of people with disabilities by showcasing them as both performers and subjects. The Sprout Film Festival will feature 50 unique films from 16 different countries this year!

By presenting films of artistry and intellect, the festival hopes to reinforce accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities and expose the general public to important issues facing this population. The goal is an enjoyable and enlightening experience that will help breakdown stereotypes, promoting a greater acceptance of differences and awareness of similarities.

The Sprout Film Festival was founded in 2003 and is programmed and supported by Sprout, a NYC-based non-profit organization, dedicated to bringing innovative programming to people with developmental disabilities.
