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.
For our 2020 online edition, all the films in our programme were presented with Closed Captions for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
All Q&As had live captions, and transcripts are available for those watching on demand. We offered BSL interpretation for several live events. See below, right, to find out more.
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.
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.
All films and Q&As this year had Closed Captions for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences, and transcripts are available for those watching the Q&As on demand.
In My Blood It Runs was available with Audio Description.
BSL interpretation was available for the Q&As for Coded Bias, Radio Silence, and Pier Kids.
