CHENNAI: The curtains on the 7th edition of AbilityFest — India International Disability Film Festival, held every two years, will go up on Monday (September 11). The three-day festival, which seeks to promote inclusion in every aspect of life, will be held at Sathyam Cinemas. Around 35 movies, handpicked from across the world and detailing the lives of persons with disabilities will be screened.
Started in 2005 by the Ability Foundation, the festival was conceptualised to bridge the divide between persons with and without disabilities and sensitise people at large. This year’s edition would be started with the screening of an Israeli movie, My Hero Brother.
