Presented in partnership with ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York

As part of this year’s Big Umbrella Festival, Lincoln Center joins forces with the ReelAbilities Film Festival, the largest festival in the world dedicated to showcasing ground-breaking films by and about people with disabilities. The week-long series of events is renowned for its wide-ranging international film selection, riveting conversations, and performances, presented annually across the New York metropolitan area.

On April 9, join us for Tropes and Traps for Filmmakers, a conversation about how a lack of representation on the screen and repetition of the same tropes in the genres of horror and documentary, allow damaging cultural attitudes to persist around disability. This panel talk with notable filmmakers from the disability community will discuss how these tropes harm us all, and how we as filmmakers can change the narrative.

The event is free but registration is required. Please fill out this form or contact [email protected] or 212-875-5375 to register.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact Guest Experience at 212-875-5456 or [email protected].
