Supporting Filmmakers With Disabilities

The SFFILM Rainin Filmmaker with Disabilities Grant supports Bay Area-based filmmakers whose films specifically address stories from the disability community. Ensuring historically excluded communities have access to artistic and financial support to create a more inclusive film landscape is at the core of SFFILM and the Rainin Foundation’s longtime partnership.

In a reflection of an unmarked storefront is a grayish silhouette of a man using an electric wheelchair. Behind the man is a spectacular red and yellow circus tent.
