ReelAbilities Houston Film & Arts Festival, an annual, free, citywide event that promotes inclusion through visual arts, films, speakers and a concert, returns Feb. 12-21 for its seventh year. Susan Farb Morris (pictured, at right) is chair, and Dee Dee Dochen (left) is co-chair. The 10-day festival showcases the contributions of people with disabilities, with the mission to foster inclusion, erase stigmas, change perceptions and create pathways to employment. The festival kicks off Feb. 12, 7-9 p.m., at A.D. Players at the George Theater with ReelPeople: UP Abilities, an evening showcasing speakers Jen Bricker, Eric Weihenmayer and Amanda Boxtel. ReelArt, at the Center for Art and Photography at Celebration Company, will open Feb. 13, with a reception featuring artist Ezra Roy. The Film Festival opens Feb. 17 with award-winning documentary Far From the Tree. The festival culminates Feb. 21 with ReelMusic, at White Oak Music Hall. See
