ACCESSIBILITY SCORECARD IN EXHIBITION

CAFILM is collaborating with other film event organizers and professional accessibility advocates from all areas of film and event exhibition to build and implement a standard that highlights and prioritizes accessibility needs at our year-round theaters and our festivals. Jim Lebrecht (he/him) and Cassidy Dimon (she/her) will co-lead a conversation with Rosemary McDonnell-Horita (she/her) T. Kebo Drew (she/her), and Wallis Brozman (she/her) to discuss the importance of providing accessible spaces to audiences and filmmakers who attend festivals, building that access into event spaces, bridging the gap between compliance and equity, the Film Event Scorecard (a tool that will document and provide feedback from film-event attendees to hold us accountable to the accessibility standards our communities deserve), and steps and resources to take action. This panel will have an ASL Interpreter, is complementary to the public, and will be recorded and then made available on our YouTube channel.

GUESTS: Jim LeBrecht, founding member, FWD-Doc; co-director of Academy-Award nominated Crip Camp (DocLands 2020) | Cassidy Dimon, founder, Film Event Accessibility Working Group (FEAW) ) | Rosemary McDonnell-Horita, Lead Consultant for Training, Events & Strategy with LaVant Consulting Inc. | T.
