Genevieve Clay-Smith Makes Filmmaking Inclusive

Filmmaker and actress Genevieve Clay-Smith doesn’t think you should count anyone out. Be My Brother, Clay-Smith’s award-winning 2008 short film, starred an actor with Down syndrome, and inspired Bus Stop Films, her nonprofit film studies program and production company for aspiring filmmakers with intellectual disabilities. Its films have screened at over 90 festivals worldwide and won more than 50 awards. This year, in addition to continuing to dispel the stigma surrounding intellectual disabilities, she is developing curriculum to share with like-minded organizations.
