ACCESS

 

 

 

We want everyone to feel included in all that Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festival has to offer. Therefore, we have committed to removing disabling barriers across our programme. This will be an ongoing process in which we’re continually working to make our programme as accessible and inclusive as possible. 

 

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about anything Access related, please don’t hesitate to contact us via this email address: access@fringefilmfest.com . One of our Access coordinators, either Kel or Storm, will be back in contact with you as soon as possible. Here are some of the things we can do:

  • Meet you at the nearest station to the cinema.

  • Ensure you have a seat close to the exit for any events without assigned seats.

  • Or you can just let us know what you need and we’ll accommodate it as much as possible.

 

This year’s festival will have a chill-out space at our primary venue, Rich Mix. Plus we have screenings and events with Closed Captions, BSL, Audio Description, and a wide range of films you can view from home. Continue to scroll down to find out more about the venues we will be at and the range of event options available.
