The Arc ECT hosts 5th Annual Film Festival - Virtually This Year

Norwich, CT – The Arc Eastern Connecticut’s 5th Annual Film Festival fundraiser will take place on Thursday, April 22, 2021 and includes high-quality award-winning films about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), interviews with team members from The Arc, and entertainment by local celebrities. The virtual platform, with many segments filmed at The Garde Arts Center in New London, provides a great opportunity to attract viewers from all over Connecticut and beyond who might not otherwise have been able to attend in-person. As part of The Arc ECT’s commitment to community education, students and teachers will be able to view the films, and will be provided special group discussion guides for further conversations. Proceeds from the event support job preparation, self-presentation skills, self-advocacy and social/recreational programming for people with IDD.
