FRED is pleased to present the new episode of Accessible Cinema, a new periodical programme on media accessibility and inclusion, fostered by Sub-ti Access. This programme aims to inform its listeners and keep you updated on the status of media accessibility. We hope to raise awareness on accessibility in media and live entertainment, which is one of the 8 priority areas of the European Disability Strategy 2010 – 2020.

This new episode of Accessible Cinema is dedicated to the trends, innovations and technologies that are shaping the world of media accessibility also due to the changes that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought to the audiovisual industry.
