SQIFF: Discussion - Deaf & Disabled Aesthetics in Film (BSL Interpreted)

  • CCA (Main Festival Hub) 350 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow, Scotland, G2 3JD United Kingdom (map)

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, Glasgow-based creative access organisation, Collective Text, and artist, curator, and consultant, Caglar Kimyoncu. Followed by an open discussion hosted by SQIFF’s Access & Engagement Coordinator and artist, Alison Smith.
