This is the second year Houston has taken part in the ReelAbilities film festival.  The festival will present award winning films by and about people with disabilities in multiple locations throughout the city. Post-screening discussions and other engaging programs will bring together our community to explore, discuss, embrace, and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience. The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research (TIRR Memorial Hermann) will serve as the lead sponsor of this new cultural event in Houston’s arts and human services arena.
