Ways to Partner

 

ReelAbilities is the largest festival in the country dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with different disabilities. Through the 4th Annual ReelAbilities: Greater DC Disabilities Film Festival, the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia (JCCNV) partners with local organizations to maximize outreach, media attention and festival participation. With a unique structure and a simultaneously targeted yet widely appealing platform, your organization will be able to leverage this partnership to reach new audiences of professional, socially active, and culturally aware community members.

Show your support of this remarkable disability awareness program and promote your organization at the same time by joining the ReelAbilities family.

The JCCNV is a 501(c)3 non-profit service organization, EIN 54-1145849.
