As you read this, filmmakers with disabilities are packing up their bags and traveling from near and far to join us for our festival. After Superfest each year, the filmmakers tell us it was well worth the journey because the community members at Superfest understand the experiences of disability showcased in their films better than any other film festival in the world.

Don't you want to be a part of that experience?

Buy your tickets for Superfest at www.superfestfilm.com<http://www.superfestfilm.com>.

In addition to the film screenings, we will have moderated panel discussions immediately following each screening that provide a deeper dive into what makes these films important:

--The 12:00 p.m. screening on Saturday, October 12th, will feature Basic Able Podcast star and filmmaker Reid Davenport in conversation with filmmakers Day Al-Mahamed (Invalid Corps), Malic Amalya (Song for Rent, After Jack Smith), and Naomi Chainey (Gaslit).

--The 11:00 a.m. screening on Sunday, October 13th, will feature Glamputee and disability trainer Alex Locust in conversation with filmmakers Lisa Niedermeyer (Inclinations) and Cheryl Green (Stinky Chicken Dog 2).

--Lastly, the 2:00 p.m. screening on Sunday, October 13th, will offer a unique program "Superfest jurors tell all!" Three-time Superfest juror Karen Nakamura, will lead a conversation with 2019 jurors Matthew Alaniz, Sara Acevedo and Alex Locust.

Tell your friends and help us spread the word!
