Workshop shows the need of accessible movies for PwD
A workshop on how to make cinema accessible for people with disabilities was organised at Siri Fort in New Delhi.
Officials from the Directorate of Film Festivals, UNESCO and the NGO Saksham were a part of the event.
The workshop took up the issue that no theatres in Delhi show movies with audio descriptions for the visually impaired audience. However, countries like the US and UK organise special shows with verbal descriptions of stage activities to provide an enjoyable experience for the visually impaired.
The workshop also showed how audio descriptions can be inserted in scenes to help the visually impaired understand and enjoy the movies in a better way.
