Arc Northland is bringing the fifth annual Sprout Touring Film Festival (SFF) to Duluth, MN from New York City, NY. The event will take place on Thursday, October 6th, 2016 at the  Zinema 2 Theater, downtown Duluth, MN (222 East Superior Street).

The Sprout Film Festival (www.sprouttouringfilmfestival.org) includes independent films that either star or are created by individuals with developmental disabilities. People with developmental disabilities as subjects and performers remain marginalized in the media. The Sprout Film Festival aims to raise their profile by showcasing works of all genres featuring this population.

By presenting films of artistry and intellect, the festival hopes to reinforce accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities and expose the general public to important issues facing this population. The goal is an enjoyable and enlightening experience that will help breakdown stereotypes, promoting a greater acceptance of differences and awareness of similarities.

Films have been selected by self-advocates and allies and will be shown in two screenings at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. each with a different selection of films. Tickets will be $7 for each screening and $10 if tickets are purchased for both the 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. programs. Light appetizers and drinks provided.

Please contact Arc Northland at 218-726-4725 or info@arcnorthland.org to reserve your tickets today!

American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services and audio description will be provided.
