THE DISABILITY IN FILM BLOGATHON IS HERE

spiral20staircase (1)

In August, Robin from Pop Culture Reverie and I decided to bring back the Disability In Film Blogathon, which was initially the brainchild of Robin’s, who hosted it by herself two years ago. This year we have joined forces and we’re collaborating together for the first time.

To read the entries that were exhibuted during the first Disability in Film Blogathon, please click here.

The purpose of this blogathon is to pay tribute to those on-screen characters or real life film stars who have endured any form of disability, a subject that is often greeted with accolades but is very rarely explored. Because the subject can be harkened back to our life, Robin and I are proud to be hosting this blogathon, which commences today.

For those of you who are participating, please submit your entries below or send them to Robin. Thank you. We are excited to read your posts.

  1. Dear Crystal,

    I didn’t see this roster when I published my article for the blogathon, so I sent the link to Pop Culture Reverie. I see that Robin sent the link to you, but I think you misunderstood that it was actually my article. Here is the link to my article again: https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2018/10/26/tommy-breens-realistic-role-in-the-river-from-1951-for-the-2nd-disability-in-film-blogathon/. It is about Tommy Breen’s Role in “The River.” I apologize for the confusion. Thank you for letting me participate!

    Yours Hopefully,

    Tiffany Brannan
