Picture this... a film festival that celebrates disability culture


Misson and activities:

As a project of Calgary Scope Society (a registerd non-profit society in Canada that works with persons with disabilities), our mission is to hold a film and video festival that focuses on disability topics and issues. Our first festival takes place October 19 - 21, 2001. Our dream is to become an annual event, and to become a valued reource on films, videos and multimedia works.

Our non governmental, non-profit, organization works at the international level.

Our organization is to some degree run, controlled and represented by disabled people.

We have expertise, or are interested in cooperating with other organizations, in the areas of:

We would like to work with other organizations to help them present their own video and multimedia projects by entering these works on disability in our Picture this film festival. As well, we plan to list these works in our festival program and on our website. We want to make these works available to a larger audience.
Our growing multimedia department has a broadcast quality camera, a professional computerized edit suite, and professional video producer working part time to help with our video projects.
