12th Annual Sprout Film Festival 


The Sprout Film Festival is a chance to experience short films related to the field of developmental disabilities.

Put on by the Berkshire County Arc Down Syndrome Family Group, this event is in its 11th year.  The Berkshire County Arc Down Syndrome Family Group is comprised of over 30 families throughout Berkshire County, working to advocate for and educate the public about Down Sydrome and people with disabilities. 

The Sprout Film Festival’s mission is to inspire audiences, promote inclusion and support transformative filmmaking as an integral part of social change. This unique event, which focuses exclusively on films that celebrate the diverse lives and creativity of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), strives to challenge assumptions and breakdown stereotypes. By introducing powerful, thought-provoking films from around the world to new and ever-more inclusive audiences, we hope to promote greater acceptance, celebrate difference and light the spark to help make the invisible, visible.

The Sprout Film Festival was founded in 2003 and is programmed and supported by Sprout, a New York City based non-profit organization dedicated to bringing innovative programming to individuals with I/DD. (www.gosprout.org)
