‘ReelAbilities’ Film Festival Coming to Reston Next Month

A film festival celebrating artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and others with different disabilities is coming to Reston.

On Sunday, March 1 at 2 p.m., people have the opportunity to see a film about Yunupingu’s success as a blind Australian artist.

This show is part of a larger project called “ReelAbilities,” which highlights artists with disabilities. Other films will be shown throughout the NoVA area, according to the event page.

“The festival will feature domestic and international award-winning films and engaging programming and art and performance that inspire the community to explore and celebrate our shared human experience,” the event page said.

The screening will be held at the Reston Community Center Hunters Woods (2310 Colts Neck Road). All ages are welcome to this free event. People interested can simply show up to the event — tickets are not required.
