Cinema subtitling in the UK – a new way forward

The UK Cinema Association and Action on Hearing Loss are excited to launch this new challenge fund to help catalyse innovation in technology that will allow people with hearing loss to have a more inclusive cinema experience.

Help us find a solution that:

  • Allows deaf and hearing-impaired people to have an integrated cinema experience with the wider public;
  • Is easy to use for both the cinema and audience member;
  • Is financially viable for venues to install and use; and
  • Is compatible with existing cinema infrastructure and technology.

The closing date for applications is Friday 28 September 2018.
