BFI FAN: Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in Focus is a new series of webinars for UK film exhibitors, focusing on accessibility for deaf audiences.
Join us on Wednesday 14 February at 14:00 for our first edition, exploring how exhibitors can advocate for standardised, accessible screenings and provisions, hosted by Access Consultant Charlie Little.
Using examples of exhibitors across the UK who host descriptive subtitled screenings, Charlie will discuss the different approaches, tools, and language you can use to integrate accessible practices within your own film screenings.
