Accessibility

Take One Action Film Festivals aim 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 identities that exist within LGBTI+ and queer communities.

We are committed to making our events truly inclusive and accessible to all our audience members. Since 2019, we have appointed a dedicated Access and Engagement Coordinator to work with us each festival. Please contact [email protected] or 0131 553 6335 if you have any queries.

This year, ALL THE FILMS IN OUR PROGRAMME will be presented with Closed Captions for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences. We will be offering BSL interpretation for several live events. See below, right, to find out more.

2020 programme

Large print programme

Word-only programme

Community ticket fund

To help ensure our events are inclusive and accessible to all, we offer a number of FREE tickets to all our films to organisations who work with people who may face barriers to accessing our programme.

Digital access fund

We have a small fund to support the cost of digital access for those who do not have access to wifi or unlimited data.

To apply please contact [email protected]


Pay what you can

In order to make our events more accessible, we introduced a “sliding scale” ticket policy at all our non-cinema venues in 2019 (with thanks to SQIFF for leading the way). For our digital edition in 2020, we will likewise invite audiences to choose what to pay for each film based on personal circumstances, from £2 up (all we ask is that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation). We hope this policy brings flexibility to those who need it most.

Some audience members may need free access. In this case, please contact [email protected], indicating the title of the film you wish to watch.

Please note that access to all films this year must be purchased via our website. Once a “ticket” has been purchased, films can be viewed any time from 00:00 on 16 September to 23:59 on 27 September. Once you start watching a film, you have 72 hours to complete the viewing.

Access provision

All films this year have Closed Captions for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences. Several of our Festival titles have English subtitles.
Several live events (filmmaker Q&As, workshops, panel sessions…) will be offered with BSL interpretation. The film In My Blood It Runs is available with Audio Description. Find a detailed list of access provision for all films and events below – and please look out for the icons on each event listing.
