ReelAbilities, the Boston Disability Film Festival, starts in a week, running from January 30th through February 6th. Autism is well represented with the following films:
  • Wretches & Jabberers
  • Son of the Stars
  • Autism in Love (short)
  • Sensory Overload (short)
  • Come As You Are
  • My Perfect Buddy (a short)

The Wretches & Jabberers screening on opening night will be attended by its protagonists Larry Bissonnette and Tracy Thesher. They communicate via iPad, and will be answering questions afterwards.

In "Wretches & Jabberers", two men with autism embark
on a global quest to change prevailing attitudes about
disability and intelligence.

Many, many other films will be shown; most ReelAbilities screenings are free of charge.

Please see the complete list of films and the full list of venues, along with the schedule for each of them. 

Tickets are available online as part of the listing for each film.

For Opening Night (1/30), the mid-fest screening (2/3), and Closing Night (2/6), a limited number of complimentary tickets are available. Please contact Ellie Pierce by email to epierce@bjff.org before January 26th.
