Through the end of November, Comcast is making 12 films from The Arc & Sprout Film Festival / Sproutflix available free On Demand for all Comcast/Xfinity subscribers.

Since 2003, the Sprout Film Festival has been a leader in showcasing film and video projects featuring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. By presenting films of artistry and intellect, the Sprout Film Festival hopes to reinforce accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities and expose the general public to important issues facing this population.

Sproutflix is making the invisible visible.

    Incredible website! As someone living with epilepsy like you this is a wonderful collection of stories and resources. I’d like to add my story on your site as well!

    FYI….I started my own blog for seizure disorder awareness – projectdare.wordpress.com. I hope you come check it out. And maybe even give it a mention!
