DFF Screen ShotIn recognition of Disabilities Awareness month, ABLE NH is sponsoring a Disabilty Film Festibal, featuring three films and a Community Conversation in Peterborough, NH. All events are free and open to the public.

"Film is a powerful medium to showcase oppression, resilience, and resurrection," say the Film Festival poster. Lost in Laconia will be shown on Monday, October 8; Dan Habib's Intelligent Lives, on October 15; and Autism in Love on October 22. All films are free and will be shown at 6:30 p.m. at the downtown Peterborough Community Theatre.

On Tuesday, October 9, a Community Conversation on Disability and Our Community will take place at 7 p.m. at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture. Jeanne Dietsch will lead the panel discussion which will include Lisa Beaudoin from ABLE NH, Rob Gillis from Monadnock Worksource, John Richards, disability professional and brain injury survivor, and Kimberly Saunders, ConVal Superintendent.

"This Community Conversation examines the ways our community responds to the challenges faced by people with disabilities. What are we doing right, and can we improve the way our institutions, companies and organizations work with individuals? What can we do locally to identify and change barriers to 'the good life' for people who experience disabilities?"
