Goa film festival to make two films accessible for the blind

The International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa will show two Hindi movies with the audio descriptions for the visually impaired people.

IFFI along with UNESCO and Delhi-based Saksham Trust will make 'Secret Superstar' and 'Hindi Medium' accessible for the visually impaired viewers under the Accessible India Campaign.

The audio description gives a visually impaired person information of what is happening on the screen in gaps in the dialogues through personal headphone.

Secret Superstar will be shown on 22 November and Hindi Medium would be shown the next day in the film festival.

The idea is to promote inclusive spaces for the disabled so that they can enjoy cinema like any other person.
