Accessibility for all Superfest films in All4Access

 

Superfest is the longest-running disability film festival in the world. This year, we at Dicapta would like to announce that we have worked with the Superfest organizers to make all the accessibility elements available in the All4Access repository for each of the films of the festival. 

 

Superfest 2022 will occur online Thursday, October 20th through Sunday, October 23rd, with in-person screenings Saturday, October 22nd at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley and Sunday, October 23rd at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.

The event is available virtually from 12:01 am PT on Thursday, October 20th, until 11:59 pm PT on Sunday, October 23rd. Once you begin screening of any film, you will have 96 additional hours to finish. 

 

You can see the full line-up of films available at the event here.

 

Dicapta created the audio description and captions for the films: Aimme Victoria, Alpen, Don Julio's Nails, In the Upper Room, Pas de Deux, Seeing Diane Arbus, Seife and Changer: A Hand Telling. The films will also be available at the DCMP. Their accessibility is sponsored by the US Department of Education under project H327C210001, "Improved Access to Video for Students with Sensory Impairments through Emerging Technology - EnhAccess.".
