The San Sebastian Festival remains committed to accessibility to all audiovisual media for people with sensory disability, as it has been since 2008, in collaboration with the Royal Board on Disability through the Centro Español de Subtitulado y Audiodescripción (Spanish Subtitling and Audio Description Centre, CESyA), an endeavour supported by Arcelor Mittal, Euskaltel, Fundación Adecco, APTES and RedMelisa.
All of the Festival galas will be subtitled in their venues as they take place and on their television broadcasts, thus making these events accessible to the hearing impaired. The San Sebastian International Film Festival is the first film festival in Spain to make its major ceremonies accessible to all people with sensory diversity. The Festival programme will also be accessible to the visually impaired on its Festival website.
At the 60th edition of the Festival, accessible screenings of different films will be offered by means of subtitling and audio description for the hearing impaired. The Festival therefore continues its efforts of recent years to ensure that all people have access to cinema in equal conditions. The screenings programmed for this year are:
In addition, a round table will be held on "Advantages and technologies of a cinema for all" with the participation, among others, of the director general of the ICAA, Susana de la Sierra.
