Discussion: Deaf & Disabled Aesthetics in Film

December 5, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Availability of access measures such as captions and audio description is often seen as an ‘extra’, sitting separately from films as works of art. However, many D/deaf and Disabled and ally filmmakers and cultural workers integrate accessibility into their style of filmmaking, or consider artistic ideas in their creation of access measures. This session will feature presentations from people working in Deaf and Disabled film aesthetics, including actor, filmmaker, and Artistic Director of Turtléar, EJ Raymond and artist, curator, and consultant, Caglar Kimyoncu. Followed by an open discussion hosted by SQIFF’s Access & Engagement Coordinator and artist, Alison Smith.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
