Film Festival Opens Window into Lives of the Disabled

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The Sprout Film Festival will make its Grand Junction debut Friday, April 20, at Avalon Theatre.
The New York City-based Sprout Film Festival was founded in 2003 to break down stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding people with developmental disabilities by using the power of film.
Ten short films will provide insight into the lives of the intellectually disabled, some of whom star in films or work behind the camera. The festival chooses films of “artistry and intellect from around the world specifically related to the lives, performances and accomplishments of people with developmental disabilities” collected by the nonprofit Sproutflix.
