A Message From RDFF Co-Founder Daniel Defabio

Disorder: The Rare Disease Film Festival co-founder Daniel DeFabio talks inspiration behind creating the film festival with partner Bo Bigelow, and partnering at this year's Biotech Week Boston 2018.

“One of the goals we had when Bo Bigelow and I created the film festival was to, not only, curate the films we show but the audience that sees them,” says DeFabio.
