Film access

ACMI and The Other Film Festival are committed to providing more accessible films. All films are **free**, audio described and captioned.

To access these features, once the playback window has started navigate to the three dots on the bottom right of the screen in the video progress bar. Click to bring up the Subtitles/CC option or the Audio option and choose from the available options.

Open captioned films display captions that dictate any spoken dialogue, music or sound effect in the film and are shown on the screen for the duration of the film.

Audio description provides commentary to describe body language, expressions, movements, key action and the visual content of the film. Narration occurs during the natural pauses in the audio, and sometimes during dialogue if deemed necessary.

Closed captioned films display captions that dictate any spoken dialogue, music or sound effect in the film. Closed captions can be turned on and off.
