Bluenose Ability Arts and Film Festival is excited to be shifting our annual festival dates to align with National AccessAbility Week. This shift strengthens the existing partnership between BAAFF & reachAbility and will allow both organizations to grow and offer more to the communities they serve. In addition to the annual festival during NAAW, BAAFF will continue to host events year round! Sign up for our mailing list to get updates!
BAAFF is committed to growing the disability arts community and hosts a number of arts focused workshops year-round, like our First-Time Filmmakers Program. We firmly believe that bringing together established and emerging artists creates powerful work that impacts the community and elevates the work being done.
The festival hosts panel discussions, bringing together some of the most experienced, influential and impactful advocates and professionals in Nova Scotia to talk about issues related to disability and the arts.
One of our favourite things to do is show off the incredible work of artists specializing in all mediums! From film screenings to circus performances, drag shows and galleries; we love it all!
