FESTIhandiVALide is the International Film Festival of amateur and professional filmmakers for and by persons with disabilities.
THE 5TH edition will be held on 19th and 20th of November 2015 ans this year the slogan is
ACCESSIBILITY TO ALL AND FOR ALL
The goal of the foundation of FESTIhandiVALide is to point to the creative work and opportunities of participants in the public cultural scene and spread the message that people with disabilities in all its diverse, complex and empowering facets should have the same rights and obligations as other members of society. They should participate in further development of democratic society and create a friendly environment, without obstacles and barriers – for everyone. The festival has great media coverage and there are a great number of activities and discussions accompanying the main program.
In this way, this festival provides a strong incentive for adoption of measures for people with disabilities to equally participate in and integrate into society.
Every year, this film festival contributes to informing the public about the rights, status and needs of people with disabilities, improving communication, acceptance of diversity and breaking down prejudices. At the same time, the film program stimulates production of new films and artistic creations.
Post-screening discussions and other engaging activities bring the community together to explore, discuss, embrace, and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.
