Reel Access: Improving Accessibility at Toronto Film Festivals

Inside Out LGBT Film Festival / Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival / ReelAbilities Toronto Film Festival

Reel Access is a project to improve accessibility at film festivals in Toronto (and area) for people who are Deaf or who have disabilities. Led by a working group of film festival representatives (Inside Out, Reel Abilities, HotDocs) and disability activists/consultants, Reel Access will bring film festivals together to address issues of access, learn about solutions and form networks of support.

JOIN US on May 27, 2019, at the Artscape Sandbox for a one-day Discovery Forum.

We’ll examine access in the areas of Technology, Programming, Customer Service, Event Production, Marketing/Outreach, Volunteers and Artists/Talent. We’ll hear from disability artists and activists and those who can talk about solutions. We’ll have food. We’ll take breaks. We’ll laugh. We’ll learn. We’ll leave with information, motivation, and a connection across the industry to make accessibility a REEL thing.

Opening Remarks: Sarah Jama, founder of the Disability Justice Network of Ontario
