the Superfest Disability Film Festival is the longest running disability film festival in the world. For more than 30 years, Superfest has celebrated cutting-edge cinema that portrays disability through a diverse, complex, unabashed and engaging lens. Free.

This event will be held by video conference on Zoom.

This showcase highlights short films from previous Superfest festivals that explore the intersection of disability and Asian or Asian American identity.

After the screening, a panel of Asian American leaders in the disability community will share their reactions to the films and how they resonate with the panelists’ personal experiences. Panelists include Diversability founder Tiffany Yu, science-fiction author and blogger Claire Light and UC Berkeley Professor of Anthropology Karen Nakamura.

Additional funding for this event was provided by the Longmore Institute and UC Berkeley’s Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society.
