About the Event

The makers and artistic collaborators of Vision Portraits and Crip Camp discuss the creative process behind their use of accessibility features such as audio description and closed captioning. The filmmakers will present clips that foreground these features and discuss them as tools that enhance the maker's cinematic expression in addition to ensuring access for broader audiences.

Moderated by Brenda Coughlin (Director of Producing and Impact Strategy, Sundance Institute), panelists include Crip Camp co-directors Nicole Newnham and James LeBrecht; Vision Portraits director Rodney Evans and audio describer Erin deWard; plus audio description producer Michele Spitz.

CART Live Captioning will be provided during the event and ASL interpretation will be available.
