About Sprout Shorts Program

In celebration of Disability Awareness month, IU Cinema, Stone Belt Arc and Sprout Film Festival invite you to experience a short film and video program related to the field of developmental disabilities.

For more information on the Sprout Film Festival, visit here.

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 break down stereotypes, promoting a greater acceptance of differences and awareness of similarities.
