Student Opportunities

Superfest 2016 is near!

After last year's sold-out success, we're continuing to celebrate disabled filmmakers all weekend long - the festival will be two days (October 22nd & October 23rd) and two venues. Tickets are now on sale!  Films are distinct at each screening, so why not come to all three sessions and immerse yourself in representations of disability that you can't find anywhere else? Whether you’re part of the disability community or just love the movies, don't miss Superfest, especially this year as it's our 30th anniversary!
We sold out last year so don't wait... buy your tickets now!

Presented by: The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University The San Francisco LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired

**All films are audio described and open captioned. ASL interpreter and CART will be provided. Please come scent-free!
