The Inclús Festival

Inclús, the Barcelona International Disability Film Festival, is back

The films to be screened from 12 to 18 December aim to focus on the theme of disability from different points of view

It’s time to welcome back a festival that aims to focus on the issue of disabilities from different points of view and to break down taboos while promoting a sector that deserves to better known. The Inclús Festival is scheduled to take place from 12 to 18 December at CaixaForum in Barcelona. The festival will feature both documentary and fictional titles that tackle the issue of disability.

Inclús is an initiative of AES organised by the Fish Muvi collective. As well as bringing to attention work done about disability, the festival aims to offer a different perspective on this theme, either through the points of view of entities working with the issue or through individuals and their experiences.

In the official section we can see films like Carte blanche, a drama about a high school teacher who decides to hide the fact of her progressively failing eyesight, Ghadi, a Lebanese film about a family with a disabled child, and Nena, a full-length Dutch film that deals with a disabled man’s suicide attempt and his relationship with his daughter. The diversity of themes in the films in the festival is a reflection of the diversity of a world that dearly needs to overturn prejudices.
