Toronto’s Hot Docs Festival adapted for the hearing impaired.

It’s always exiting to share positive information about events and festivals that have recognized and implemented the need for accessibility. Canada’s International Documentary Festival is happening here in Toronto on April 28th-May 8th, 2016 and for the first time in 23 years, they have done just that. Hot Docs is not only North America’s largest documentary festival with over 200 films, but this year, it will be providing 25 of the screenings for blind and low-vision viewers. They are looking forward to extending their audience to one who normally would not take part in the festival.

AMI accessible media Inc has teamed up with Hot Docs to bring this described video technology to the documentaries. They have tried to make the festival as accessible as possible. To find a film at the festival with described sound please visit this link.
