ReelAbilities chairs Marcy Margolis, Dee Dee Dochen, Benjy Hershorn, and Eve Lapin (pictured, from left) led the 9th annual ReelAbilities Houston Film and Arts Festival. The virtual event, produced by the JFS Alexander Institute for Inclusion, in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, featured 16 award-winning films, a speakers event, a ReelMusic concert, and virtual art experiences. ReelAbilities uses the arts to educate and change perceptions about disabilities, and the festival promotes inclusion by celebrating the talents of people with disabilities.
