Disabled actors push boundaries in film event

The Reelabilities Film Festival provides a platform for disabled minority that feels marginalised in Hollywood.

    Like many minority groups, people with disabilities say they are under-represented in Hollywood. A unique film festival taking place in New York this weekend aims to change that. 

    The Reelabilities Film Festival is now in its sixth year, and has helped talents within this minority share their stories and show a character that goes beyond their physical disabilities.
