About this Podcast

As the shift to online viewing has increased substantially during the pandemic, how do exhibitors ensure that these type of screenings are available to as many people as possible? While there are some clear opportunities in terms of reaching audiences who may not be able to travel to cinema spaces, there are also some issues in terms of availability of captioned films etc. Hugh and Sara are delighted to have Toki Allison, BFI Film Audience Network Access Officer share her expertise and offer plenty of advice for making online screenings as inclusive as possible.

The Moving Pictures Podcast series forms part of a wider Moving Pictures Programme of training and mentoring for Film Hub NI Members. Sincere thanks to Northern Ireland Screen for supporting this initiative through the Department for Communities.

Every effort has been made to provide a quality listening experience but please note that these recordings were made during January – March 2021 in our homes over Zoom so the sound quality may, at times, be patchy. Many thanks to our wonderful producer, Stephen Mullan, for all his hard work recording and editing this work under difficult circumstances.
