It's time to head to the movies again!
Open Door Group is excited to present the 3rd Annual “Picture This…Film Festival, an International Disability Film Festival” in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside on Thursday, August 23rd.
The evening will include a screening of several award-winning, short films from around the world that have been produced, written and/or directed by persons with disabilities. Be entertained, learn something new or gain a greater understanding of disability through these incredible films. This year's festival includes the Unique Art Experience, a gallery showcase of artwork created by participants in Open Door Group's Leisure and Health program, as well as pieces from artists in the Vancouver community.
