ReelAbilities Film Festival in Atlanta, GA!

by Eric Pudalov

Reel Abilities Film Festival

Having been a Communications major in college, I spent a great deal of time studying film and video. So it should come as no surprise that I’m a huge supporter of film festivals, particularly in the Atlanta area.

Therefore, I encourage as many people as possible to attend the ReelAbilities Film Festival, which will begin Saturday, Oct. 1 at , located at 3110 Roswell Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30305.

The founders of the festival hope to draw audience members from three specific demographics, according to their homepage:

  • People with disabilities who will share their stories and points of view
  • People directly impacted by disabilities, family members, service providers, or other stakeholders
  • The film-going public who are interested in films that they may otherwise not see in Atlanta

This film festival, which was founded in NY, is committed to telling the stories and raising awareness about the lives of people with all kinds of disabilities, both physical and mental.

2011 marks the first ReelAbilities ATL, which will present award winning films in a number of locations throughout the Atlanta-Metro area. Additionally, the festival includes discussions and other gatherings designed to bring members of the community together for a chance to recognize and champion the variety of life experiences each of us share.

  1. Hi Eric–

    You are quite a hard guy to track down! I work for University Press of New England, and we are interested in possibly using one of your images on the cover of a forthcoming book about drug addiction in teens. (At least I think it’s originally yours.) It’s the profile of a young girl sitting on the floor with her head down, and I guess it’s somehow related to Forever Resentful Mother. I’m too old to be able to tell clearly if you uploaded this image, or the original image of the ‘mother’. In any event, do you own the original image, and if so, would you be interested in granting rights to use it? We are a non-profit organization, so our pockets are not very deep, but we would be very interested in using it. If you are not the owner, might you know who is, and could you direct me to them? Sorry, I’m too old to understand how the whole meme thing works, although my teenagers are into them a bit. I did get a very interesting lesson on meme culture, though, and now at least I know how to pronounce it! You have a very fertile mind, something I appreciate! Feel free to reply here or use my email Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give. Susan Sylvia
