Take One Action Film Festival aims to create a safe and inclusive environment for everyone regardless of their disability, economic status, race, gender identity or sexual orientation, and we ask people to respect each other and be sensitive to the diversity of the identities that exist within our communities. 

Removing barriers to access is embedded in working practices of all of our staff members, and since 2019 we have appointed a dedicated member of staff to support us in enhancing our access provision. Please contact or if you have any queries.

BSL users can contact us via an online BSL/English interpreter

Community ticket fund

We hope that our sliding scale ticket policy will make our events more accessible to all. To support group attendance, we also offer a number of FREE tickets for each screening to community organisations, youth groups or charities. 

For more information please contact

Pay what you can

To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what you pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0 – £10.

All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income. 

Venue access

Our festival events are held in venues across Scotland.

COVID-19 Safety

COVID restrictions in Scotland have been relaxed, but we still wish for everyone to feel safe and comfortable at TOA events. We kindly ask that people take a lateral flow test before attending a TOA event, and to not attend if you feel unwell (staff and volunteers will be testing regularly).

*Descriptive subtitles, sometimes referred to as SDH (subtitles for Deaf and hard-of-hearing), HoH (hard-of-hearing), and captions, transcribe dialogue (e.g. for English speaking audiences, both English and any other languages) and relevant aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects, attempting to give viewers an equal experience to those who are able to watch films without descriptive subtitles. Descriptive subtitles would include speech identifiers and descriptive elements such as [door slamming] and [kettle whistling].
