The Imagine Short Film Festival


Imagine Supported Living Services is hosting its 2nd annual short film festival on September 28th at the Museum of Art and History in Downtown Santa Cruz. We are now accepting short films to consider for this festival. We will consider all films that are by, about, with or connected to individuals with developmental disabilities living in our community.


The purpose of this short film festival is to EMPOWER – INSPIRE – ENGAGE – AND CELEBRATE our amazing community of individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, friends, coworkers, support staff and allies! We believe these short films are the perfect vehicle for people to express their strengths and abilities and share them with the greater Santa Cruz community!


Imagine is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has been supporting adults with developmental disabilities living in Santa Cruz County since 2002. Imagine exists to empower individuals with disabilities through service and advocacy. Learn more about Imagine at .
