The workshop Translating cinema introduces the notion of “accessible filmmaking”, i.e. how the creative team behind film production can collaborate with film translators for best results. It then begins to look at accessibility beyond language boundaries, i.e. it gives an overview of the main translation modes used to translate films today and provides a historical background of their development, focusing on dubbing and subtitling in greater detail, with their specific technical constraints and rules. The workshop is organized in partnership with Sub-ti.
