PODCAST | The panel European Accessibility Act: Obligations and Opportunities deals with the new European accessibility legislation, with specific references to audiovisual contents. The event is host by SUB-TI in collaboration with Venice Production Bridge, and it is conceived to raise awareness within the film industry on new laws aimed at creating consistency in the European market so that all products and services, including audio-visual content, can also be enjoyed by people with visual and hearing disabilities.
At the same time, the audio-visual industrywill able to target an international market governed by common rules, while at present norms and regulations are still somewhat different between countries.
Speakers include Italian and foreign industry experts and representatives of institutions.
They discussed the international scenario, the Italian scenario and the opportunities that the new law will offer, opening up an entire new audience segment that still remains highly neglected in Italy.
