Screenings and Venue

Accessible Screenings

We endeavour to make all of our events and screenings - including those as part of the Into Film Festival - as accessible as possible to everyone. This includes striving to ensure the availability of wheelchair access, audio-description, subtitles and autism-friendly screenings.

Autism Friendly Screenings

Lots of the venues we use offer autism-friendly screenings, which take the following measures:

  • The lights will be on low
  • The volume will be turned down
  • There will be no trailers at the beginning of the film
  • Audiences will be able to take their own food and drinks
  • Audiences will be able to move around the cinema freely
