The Possibilities Series of videos focuses on the lives and accomplishments of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Each 4-7 minute video highlights one individual's journey, along with their family and friends, and shows the myriad possibilities and options that all people have as they grow up, become independent, and pursue their life's dreams and goals.

The purpose of the Possibilities Series is to present a vision of how individuals with disabilities and their families can lead the lives that they envision, without barriers and in the direction they truly wish to go. The hope is that these films are viewed and used by anyone who wants to explore all of the possibilities that their lives may hold!

Video Launch

The first four videos in the Possibilities Series were launched during a special celebration held at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) on January 13, 2012.  The event attracted over 400 people who were treated to a screening of the videos, received a DVD copy of the films, and enjoyed a night with friends, family, and colleagues at the DIA.  The films were developed, shot, and edited by Avalon Films of Royal Oak, Michigan.
