14th Annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival

Texas’ original cinematic celebration of disability.

The Festival opens on Friday with My Bionic Pet (2014). Have you ever seen a pig in a wheelchair? How about an alligator with a prosthetic tail? Originally aired as a NATURE documentary, My Bionic Pet takes a look at animals with injuries or disabilities—and the custom prosthetics their humans develop for them. Stick around after the film for a Skype Q&A with My Bionic Pet star, Chris P. Bacon!

Join cohosts the Austin Animal Center before the show to meet Austin-based bionic pet
