Florence Pugh in Lady Macbeth, 2016

IFI Accessible Cinema Focus Group Meetings

Posted: 3 April, 2017

Have you attended open captioned or audio described screenings at the IFI?

If so, the IFI would like to hear from you.

In April 2016 the IFI launched an accessible cinema pilot project, in conjunction with the Arts Council and ADI. Since then IFI have screened over twenty two films with open captions or audio description, to meet the varied needs of our audiences.
The IFI are holding two focus group meetings in April in order to get your feedback on the pilot project.

Monday April 10th, 6pm – 7.30pm for deaf/hard of hearing audiences availing of open captions
(+ ISL & onsite speech to text facilitation)
Wednesday April 19th,  6pm – 7.30pm for blind/vision impaired audiences availing of audio description
The meetings will be held at the Irish Film Institute, 6 Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

The meetings will be informal. Light refreshments will be served.

All focus group participants will receive a pair of complimentary tickets to an accessible screening of their choosing at IFI.
Please contact Louise O’Reilly at IFI (loreilly@irishfilm.ie) / 01 679 5744 to confirm your participation in the focus group and indicate which meeting you will attend.

If you cannot attend, we would welcome your feedback through our online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Accessible2017
