ReelAbilities NJ - 2020 Film Festival presents: "Carol of the Bells" & "Conversations With..." Director Joey Travolta

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Reel Abilities Carol of the Bells

Joey Travolta (Beverly Hills Cop III 1994, Navajo Blues 1996) set up Inclusion Films in 2007 to help people with special needs get into filmmaking. Through this company, he and his staff have shown that development difficulties are not an impediment to a film career, producing movies like 2008’s Sweet Sixteen and 2010’s Spud.

Carol of the Bells is the first film where 70% of the crew has a developmental disability- including lead stars RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad series, Isaac 2021) and Andrea F. Friedman (Law & Order: SVU series, Family Guy series). It won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the San Diego International Film Festival on October 19, 2019. Register for the event NOW here. Watch the trailer here.

Joey Travolta also recently completed Let’s Work, a documentary that follows eight adults with disabilities on their successful employment journeys.

WHEN: You can screen "Carol of the Bells" and view a pre-recorded conversation between Joey Travolta and Elaine Katz anytime from December 1-3. The documentary "Let's Work" will also be available for screening from December 1-3.
