Written By: Marcelle - Sep• 07•12

The Burbank International Film Festival is proud to support women in film as well as diversity
in television and motion pictures. The Burbank International Film Festival is proud announce
the advanced screening of the Documentary “Cinemability” for the Opening Night Gala. Directed by: Jenni Gold.
“Cinemability” examines the ever-changing portrayals of disability story lines in film, TV and advertising
CAST: Ben Affleck, Jamie Foxx, Gary Sinise, William H. Macy, Marlee Matlin, RJ Mitte, Beau Bridges,
Garry Marshall and Kyle MacLachlan.

From the early days of silent films to present day, from Chaplin to X-Men,
disability portrayals are ever changing. This dynamic documentary will take a
detailed look at the evolution of “disability” in entertainment. Our in-depth investigation
will go behind the scenes to interview Filmmakers, Studio Executives, Film Historians, and
Celebrities, as well as utilize vivid clips from Hollywood’s most beloved motion pictures,
television programs, and commercials to focus attention on the powerful impact that
entertainment and the media can have on society. Do disability portrayals in the media impact
society or does the media simply reflect our ever-changing attitudes? In this important documentary
we will see if media has had a hand in transforming the societal inclusion of the disabled and determine
if an enlightened understanding of disability can have a positive impact on the world.
