A Practical Introduction to Audio Description and Described Video and Its Audiences
April 21, 6pm EST
This event is co-presented with InterAccess as part of “Rhizomatic Pedagogies,” a pilot project aiming to foreground the new media leadership and innovation of Black, Indigenous, and Disability Justice communities.
This workshop will cover the practical elements of making films accessible to Blind and partially sighted audiences according to common specifications, best practices and guidelines as well as antiracist and anti discriminatory techniques. In addition we will hear from an audio description user about their experience in different settings and for different works. We will discuss one of the described (short) films in the festival as a jumping off point to a more nuanced discussion and invite you to screen the described film prior to attending the workshop.
This event is an online workshop, hosted via Zoom. To attend, please log into your TQFF account and return to this page when the event is live. The Zoom link will be available for TQFF Website Registrants. No other registration is required.
