The word access has a unique resonance for nonfiction filmmakers – when applied to disability it gains even greater significance. Access to resources are needed to make a film. Access is also required to observe and document a subject. When referring to disability, access is also necessary to move through space and use equipment. As disabled filmmakers working in the field, join our panelists as they discuss the current state of nonfiction filmmaking and detail the ways in which disability intersects with activism, visibility, and representation in addition to how non-disabled allies can help advance opportunity and accessibility in the industry.
