The Center for Disability Rights has convened its first ever Free Our People Film Contest. The judges have picked three winners from the more than ninety-five films that were submitted. CDR is excited to reveal these contest winners and announce the upcoming public debut of these films at our home office in Rochester, NY on Monday, August 7th.
Join us on August 7th, 6pm to 8pm, at the The Little Theatre for the Free Our People Film Festival, featuring short films that explore institutional bias, while highlighting the struggle many disabled people have to live in their own homes and communities. Join us to find out why we are fighting for home and community based care and listen to a Q & A session with the filmmakers about the making of the films and what is truly at stake.
Free admission for everyone in the community! Come for a great night at the movie theater and bring your friends!
