Superfest International Disability Film Festival is a showcase of juried films held in the San Francisco Bay Area. This annual competition celebrates cutting-edge cinema that portrays disability culture in all its diverse, complex, and empowering facets, and is the longest running festival of its kind in the world.
Started in the 1970’s, Superfest is currently coordinated by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University and LightHouse for the Blind. The Lighthouse is proud that every film shown at every Superfest is fully audio described for all attendees, one of the key accomplishments in involving the blind in the wider disability film festival.
This November, the Bay Area will once again come alive with the visions of film and media makers exploring the rich diversity of disability culture. Stay tuned for upcoming events and announcements! www.superfestfilm.com.
