Free audio described shows!

This year's Into Film Festival takes place from 8-24 November. It's the world's largest free film and education event for 5-19 year olds, presenting 3,000 free cinema screenings, and showcasing over 140 films at more than 600 venues across the UK. Around 30% of shows are audio described.

Each year in the UK hundreds of children are born with significant hearing or sight loss. Thanks to the inclusion of subtitled and audio-described shows, the Festival will enable many young people with hearing or sight loss to enjoy the cinema experience with their peers. For some it will be the first time they can share the enjoyment of discussing the film afterwards. For all it will be an exciting, welcoming, inclusive and accessible day out with their friends.

Many people have discovered - or rediscovered - the joys of cinemagoing, thanks to audio description. Here's some recent feedback:

"Last night I thoroughly enjoyed a film for the first time in my life. The film was Gravity. I had heard it looks fantastic, amazing visuals, 'spectacular, all descriptions that are not very useful to person with severe sight loss. But I'm a space-buff, I just had to catch it on a huge screen. I've seen IMAX space films before I lost my sight, so kind of knew what to expect. For Gravity, all I could see on the cinema screen were black and white blobs and mis-shapes of various sizes. But that's more than I can usually see in a film. The contrast of the white suits of the astronauts floating around the black of space made the film clearer than any I've seen in a long time. But without the audio description explaining what was going on the story, with its many long dialogue-free scenes would have been lost on me. It was absolutely gripping. I was on the edge of my seat! I really felt like I was up there with the characters. It was a wonderful experience."
