ReelAbilities Film Festival Boston

The ReelAbilities Film Festival is about bringing people together to connect, to be entertained, informed, and appreciate the artistic expressions of people with disabilities. Being together as a diverse community and enjoying films together is a special and unique experience that we are honored to facilitate each year. 

Due to the rapidly evolving situation in the state of Massachusetts regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), Boston Jewish Film and The ReelAbilities Film Festival Boston are suspending all in-person film screenings for the 2020 ReelAbilities Festival.

We are currently working with our partners to bring the ReelAbilities Festival online and present films and discussions virtually. We are as committed as ever to bringing exciting and important films to our community, and we will continue to do so in the best and safest way possible. 

This continues to be a dynamic situation, and we are dedicated to keeping the community safe and healthy. In the days to come, Boston Jewish Film will be following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and from Governor Charlie Baker and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health regarding COVID-19. 

Please stay tuned for online screening schedules and information. We will update all filmgoers with more details as they become available. You can sign up to receive more information at

Thank you for your time and understanding.
