ReelAbilities: NJ Disabilities Film Festival

ReelAbilities: Disabilities Film Festival 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. Initiated in NY in 2007, the festival presents award-winning films by and about people with disabilities in multiple locations throughout each host city. Post-screening discussions and other engaging programs bring together the community to explore, discuss, embrace and celebrate the diversity of our shared human experience.

From March 13-17, ReelAbilities will debut at various locations throughout New Jersey, including a full five-day festival at Kean University in Union, N.J. In doing so, New Jersey will join a long list of communities throughout the country who are hosting ReelAbilities, including: Cincinnati, Boston, Atlanta, Richmond, DC, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston and Minneapolis.

    How do you get to Keane U from NYC? I can travel via bus/train from NY Port Authority/Penn Station NJ Transit ... Either one works, the easiest travel route to get me as close to the university and venue works best for me and I need detailed directions / landmarks are great :D Thanks!

      From NY Penn Station, take the train to the Union Station on Green Lane. It may require a transfer at Newark Penn Station. The station is directly across from our main campus. STEM building is across the perpendicular street.
      Once you get off the train, walk/roll straight ahead to get out of the station, make a left when you get to the end of the property. Make a right at Morris Avenue and walk/roll straight until you see the safe PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY to cross the street directly to the STEM building.
