Accessible films for children with disabilities, autism in Turkey
The Accessible Film Festival in Ankara in Turkey has been making hundreds of films accessible to visually and hearing-impaired cinema fans since the last four years.
It provides audio descriptions for the visually impaired and with sign language and detailed captions for the hearing impaired.
It also has films accessible for children with autism.
For example, an animated film ‘Songs of the Sea’ will be shown in a dim hall with a low audio level and no ads before the movie to make it accessible for children with autism.
The film festival will take place in May this year.
