All4Access Partners with ReelAbilities Film Festival LA for Inclusive Film Experience

The ReelAbilities Film Festival: Los Angeles will once again be using All4Access to provide access to audio description for the films featured during the festival. By synchronizing with the film at the theater, the All4Access app allows the audience to hear the audio description on their mobile devices.

This is a two-day festival dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories, and artistic expressions of people with disabilities. It is hosted by the City of Los Angeles Department on Disability in partnership with Grand Performances. 

Its 6th edition will take place on May 4th and 5th at Downtown LA's California Plaza. It will showcase 14 films as well as the finalist of the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge 2024, a 5 day filmmaking contest that gives filmmakers—with and without disabilities—the opportunity to collaborate to tell unique stories that showcase disability in its many forms. 

Films featured in the festival include:

  • Forget Me Not, the story of a Emilio, a 3-year-old child with Down Syndrome, and his parents as they navigate the NY public schools, a system originally designated to silo children with disabilities.
  • Imagined Touch, a documentary about two deafblind women that turned their small community performance into a theatre production that became a sell-out success at the Sydney Festival, going on to win at the Victorian Green Room Awards.
  • Being Michelle, the story of a woman who survived incarceration in a system that refused to accommodate her needs as a deaf person with autism. Michelle’s trajectory changed when she met Kim Law, a blind life coach who teaches in the prison. A story of redemption, this award-winning film is about the bonds between two women committed to thriving in a broken system and forging a path to healing.

Dicapta is honored to be working again with the ReelAbilities Film Festival: Los Angeles to provide access to the audio description of its films.
