ASL INTERPRETATION (FRIDAY, MAY 27)
We are pleased to launch an accessibility initiative for the Deaf/HoH community for the first Friday of the Festival, May 27. We will have interpreters onsite to facilitate any conversations or questions as well as sign the films' introductions and the post-film Q&As.
Four of the films on Friday, May 27 will be screened in their original language with English subtitles:
- Esteros, with post-film Q&A (6:45PM)
- Summertime (7:15PM)
- Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo, with post-film Q&A (9:15PM)
- Alena (9:30PM)

Inside Out is committed to improving accessibility to all audience members. We strive to ensure that all Toronto LGBT Film Festival venues comply with the principles outlined in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. Unfortunately, two of our 2016 venues are not wheelchair accessible: The Steady and 2nd Floor.
TIFF Bell Lightbox and most Inside Out party and reception venues are wheelchair accessible. In addition, all cinemas at TIFF Bell Lightbox have accessible seating. Please note: The Steady is not wheelchair accessible.
Any person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to enter Festival events and screenings with his or her support person. Ticket and service fees will not be charged for one support person for admission to Regular Screenings but they are required to acquire a ticket from the box office (subject to availability).
Inside Out welcomes people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed at our venues in the areas that are open to the public.
ASSISTIVE LISTENING DEVICES
Phonic Ear Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) are available at TIFF Bell Lightbox. The devices, compatible with any Festival screening, will be made available to patrons requesting them through our Steve & Rashmi Gupta Box Office.
All foreign-language films are screened in their original language with English subtitles.
