The Sprout Touring Film Festival
allows you to custom design a local film festival of movies related to the field of developmental disabilities.
Whether for advocacy, awareness, fundraising or thought-provoking entertainment, arranging a Sprout Touring Film Festival in your area is sure to create a highly memorable and enlightening experience for your audience.
Through our continually growing library of film collected through the running of our annual Sprout Film Festival in NYC, your agency or group has access to an extensive and varied selection of films of artistry and intellect.
You can choose to show a diverse mix of films or narrow your focus to particular
theme or subject. Please note that a number of films cataloged on this site are also available for sale at our sister site, sproutflix.org. The prices of films offered at sproutflix are for individual viewing only and not for institutional use or festival viewings.
