To all filmmakers: If your film is selected, we encourage you to provide more accessible film formats when possible. Your contact at the Program department will get in touch about whether you have a version available with English subtitles, closed captions, and/or audio descriptions. For more information, please refer to the closed captions and audio descriptions guidelines from the Audiovisual Accessibility Foundation (SAVT), which IDFA has partnered with since 2019. If your film is selected and you haven’t been able to produce these files yet, SAVT can help you get started.
