At Ability Foundation, it has always been our passion to bridge the divide between persons with and without disabilities and sensitise people at large. AbilityFest - a celebration on celluloid - began with this intent.

AbilityFest - India International Disability Film Festival is a biennial event. It presents a unique and inspiring showcase of extraordinary films from around the world. Films by with and about people with disabilities. AbilityFest was curated in its formative years by well known consultant, noted critic and former Director of the National Film Archive of India (NFAI), Late Mr. P.K. Nair. AbilityFest is an international, high profile event bringing to the fore the philosophy of an inclusive society. The need for universal access is underlined in every aspect of the festival: from captioned as well as audio described films to accessible venues.

The Organising Committee :
C.K.Ranganathan – President
Revathy – Director
Jayshree Raveendran – Chairperson

The all India one minute competition – 60 Seconds to Fame was introduced as part of AbilityFest to invite deeper thinking on disability issues.
