BATAVIA – Arc of Genesee Orleans annual Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month celebration includes an art show and comedy-themed film festival. The community is invited to attend the Saturday, March 9 event at Stuart Steiner Theatre at Genesee Community College. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. for the art show that features work by individuals served at the local disability service provider.
Agency Director of Development Shelley Falitico said kicking off the films at 1:00 p.m. will be Anthony Oliver, aka “Laughing Jack!!” in a fifteen minute standup routine. “Laughing Jack is a natural entertainer and we are happy he’s making his debut at our Art Show & Film Festival,” she said.
All of the films are from the New York City-based Sprout collection. “Sprout films are produced by or feature individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities – the work is amazing,” Ms. Falitico said, “And this year – very funny!”
The Art Show & Film Festival is free and open to the public.
