Reel Access Project + Accessibility Resource Guide
Funded by the Toronto Arts Council, this 2019-2020 project brought together film festival representatives and disability activists/consultants to address obstacles to accessibility at film festivals in Toronto.
The project held a well-attended Discovery Forum in May of 2019 to bring the discussion of accessibility to the foreground. A follow-up in-person forum planned for 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19 and replaced with an industry survey on accessibility improvements. The project also created an Accessibility Resource Guide for film festivals.
