Festival is a bright and wonderful 3-DVD series of two-hour programs celebrating visual arts for the deaf, hearing-impaired and hearing children of all ages. It is performed in Sign Language, full sound, and with 'open' captions requiring no decoding device.
Each of the three DVDs contains four or five entertaining half-hour vignettes involving pantomime, signed puns, visual story-telling, and arts & crafts, for a total of 13 episodes.
