Shuswap Connextions is a self-advocacy group for people with and without disabilities getting together as one.
The Salmon Arm group is hosting a disability film festival. They hope the community will show their support and come out and enjoy some films based on people with disabilities.
This festival is to make people aware of the challenges we go through and not to shy away from them.
The group wants to convey the message that the disabled are just like everybody else, just a little different in their own way.
The film festival will be at the Salmar Classic Theatre on Alexander Street on Sunday, Nov. 29.
Doors open at 9:15 a.m. with a meet and greet including entertainment.
The first film at 10 a.m. is called I Am Sam (PG). Film number two is at 12:45 p.m. and is called Benny & Joon (PG). The third film, which runs at 3 p.m., is a documentary called Up Syndrome.
The fourth film, Mask (14A), is at 5 p.m. and the last film, Rain Man (14A) is at 7:45 p.m.
Come out learn about the group and meet the members. There will be information about other disability related agencies and groups in town.
Admission is by donation. Tickets will be available at the door.
