Leah Romond, Senior Production Advisor
RespectAbility Entertainment Professionals Lab, Summer 2020
Leah Romond is an attorney, producer and advocate for full disability inclusion in film and television production.
Romond’s recent project, Best Summer Ever, is a feature-length original musical created entirely by an integrated cast and crew of talent with and without disabilities. The film was slated to begin its festival run with a SXSW 2020 World Premiere, and was awarded the SXSW Final Draft Screenwriters Award. While the festival run has been halted indefinitely due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Romond continues to work toward authentic disability representation in front of and behind the camera.
