ACCESSIBILITY SCORECARD IN EXHIBITION
Over the last year, a small group of professional advocates from all areas of film and exhibition have been working to create a coalition that highlights and prioritizes accessibility needs at film events. Jim Lebrecht from FWD-Doc and Cassidy Dimon from the Film Event Accessibility Working Group (FEAW), with support from the Film Festival Alliance and 1IN4 Coalition, created a Film Event Accessibility Scorecard. A tool that will document and provide feedback from film-event attendees (filmmakers, film professionals, and audiences), the Scorecard aims to hold us accountable to the accessibility standards our communities deserve. Join us for this informative panel discussion as our guests delve into the current state of accessibility at film events and how we can do our part in spreading accessibility awareness. With the Scorecard, we can challenge the industry to identify and implement strategies to make film events more inclusive.
