What’s on offer?

An accessible film screening and panel discussion

What’s it about?

Filmmakers use sound to build suspense for their audiences, but are Deaf people getting an equal experience to hearing people when they watch a film? Consider this and other questions about how film and TV can be made more accessible for Deaf people at the launch of the new animated short film, “Animating Inclusion". The film explores how well sound is translated into the captions Deaf audiences read when they watch a film. You will have the opportunity to meet the researchers and producers who created this animation. BSL live interpretation will be provided throughout the event. The film will be available to watch on the University of Sheffield Player after the event.

Who’s leading the event?

Dr Ryan Bramley and Dr Kirsty Liddiard, University of Sheffield
