As part of the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge (EDFC), the winning filmmakers are awarded mentorship meetings with active members of the entertainment industry. Jonathan Johnson won “Best Filmmaker” for the 2017 Challenge with his film Siblings Liebencrantz, and recently spoke with actor Randall Park of Fresh Off the Boat.

One part of their meeting focused on Jonathan’s current project, The Van Gogh Show, and submitting their work to Channel 101. The show was recently approved for its third month of production. Ultimately, the mentor meetings provide up and coming filmmakers the opportunity to learn from industry professionals and help advance their careers in entertainment while helping to change the way people view disability
