The Sprout Film Festival was founded in 2003 by Anthony DiSalvo. The Sprout Film Festival is the first and only festival to exclusively showcase films featuring people with developmental disabilities. The goal then, as is today, is “making the invisible visible”. Too often, major filmmakers cast actors and actresses in roles portraying individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Sprout program believes that actors with intellectual and developmental disabilities can, and should, fulfill those roles. Films showcased during the Sprout Film Festival allow individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities display their gifts and unique talents in film format to individuals across the country through the touring festival, as well as a three day festival each year in New York City. The festival serves as an incredible venue to display the dignity and worth of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their communities, in their states, and across the nation.
