We are increasing the number of accessible screenings at LIFF 2023 and adding more each week as further films with accessible options become available. More films will be available with descriptive subtitles and audio description, and we also have relaxed screenings.

Screenings of films with descriptive subtitles

Films with additional descriptive subtitles of non-dialogue audio, combining the information of both subtitles and captions. They include important non-dialogue audio like sound effects and speaker identification.

Screenings with audio description

Audio description is commentary that aims to describe body language, expressions and movements to blind or partially sighted audience members.

Relaxed screenings

Relaxed screenings are screenings where the environment has been adapted to be more welcoming and accessible to people with additional needs. These could be people living with autism, or other people with neurodiversity.
