The Sprout Film Festival Returns to Charlottesville

On Friday, March 9, the Sprout Film Festival returns to Charlottesville! For two public screenings, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center will come alive with the vision of film- and media-makers exploring the complexities of disability experience and the rich diversity of disability culture, brought to you by the PREP/Parent Resource Center and VSA Charlottesville/Albemarle, in collaboration with The Arc of the Piedmont, Piedmont Council for the Arts, Enrichment Alliance of Virginia, and other groups.

Each screening is an enjoyable and enlightening experience that will help break down stereotypes and promote a greater acceptance of differences and awareness of similarities. Several films have been created by individuals who have disabilities and all of the films reflect a unique perspective on our world that is of artistic and entertainment value to each of us. In addition to the films, an exhibition of original VSA art will be on display in the lobby.

Festival show times are 10:30am-12:00pm and 7:00-9:00pm. The morning show is FREE, with a $10 suggested donation for the evening performance. For more information, contact Sarah Blech at 434-975-9400 ext. 68032 or
