Disorder: The Rare Disease Film Festival

October 2 @ 12:00 pm - October 3 @ 8:00 pm

$5

Disorder: The Rare Disease Film Festival is a new event showcasing 30 films from around the world which address the challenges of life with a rare disease. It will be held Oct. 2nd and 3rd, 2017 in Cambridge, MA. Most (but not all) of our films are documentaries. Many are less than 15 minutes.

Between our slates of films rare disease researchers, filmmakers and patient advocates will also share stories from their experience.
We believe increased awareness can connect patient families, inspire conversations about translation applications of current science, lead to new paths for research and save lives. These films put the often abstract and dire clinical information into the context of real people living their lives.
