As part of its Move to Include initiative, WXXI and the Golisano Foundation host a FREE screening of Dina, a love story about a couple who are differently abled. Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge. Filmmakers Dan Sickles and Antonio Santini construct seamless vérité scenes that lovingly frame Dina and Scott's vulnerable, yet matter-of-fact romance.

Move to Include is a partnership between WXXI and the Golisano Foundation designed to build a more inclusive community by inspiring and motivating people to embrace different abilities and include all people in every aspect of community. Move to Include is an extension of WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies week-long initiative, Dialogue on Disability, which is an annual week-long programming initiative that encourages community dialogue about the lives and abilities of people with disabilities.
