SPECIAL EVENT | ADA Film Festival 

On July 26, The American with Disabilities Act will turn 25. The bill, which is widely considered the civil rights bill for the disabled, and its anniversary will be celebrated at the ADA Film Festival, organized by Rochester's Center for Disability Rights (CDR).

Part of CDR's 25th Anniversary Celebration of the ADA — which includes a cultural art exhibition and a softball game — the ADA Film Festival presents a series of films and speakers who represent different facets of disabled culture. Among the films to be screened are Joanna Rudnick's exploration of our understanding of what is beautiful in "On Beauty"; Harvey Burrell and Tripp Clemens' portrait of disabled athletes, "Endless Abilities"; and Joshua Tate's drama on love and the stigmas of mental disabilities, "Love Land." Speakers include Anthony Bourdain sidekick Zamir Gotta and director Joshua Tate. The festival runs for three nights — Mondays, June 22, July 6, and July 13 — at the Cinema Theatre (957 South Clinton Avenue), beginning at 6 p.m. each night.

Entrance for the ADA is free and open to the public. For more information, visit cdrnys.org.
