[External Event] Film Accessibility through Sound Design: a panel discussion with filmmakers

Posted: Thursday 19 October 2023 | Louise Railton

On November 9th, a panel discussion on accessible filmmaking will take place at King’s Manor in York.

Filmmakers Joseph Inman and Samantha Moore will join Prof Mariana Lopez from the Schools of Arts and Creative Technologies to explore the implementation of accessibility for visually impaired film audiences through sound design in their productions. The panel will share insights into working with the Enhanced Audio Description (EAD) methods.


Joseph Inman, a film director from Cornwall, focuses on community participation and coastal storytelling. His film “Spines” was the first BFI Network-funded film to be written, directed, and starred by an autistic person. Samantha Moore, an award-winning animation director, enjoys the versatility of animation and its ability to convey complex ideas to a broad audience. Her latest film, “Visible Mending,” commissioned by the BFI Short Form Fund, is UK-Midlands-based and all-female in key roles.


The event will take place from 14:30 to 15:30 on the 9th November 2023 at King’s Manor, University of York, Exhibition Square, York, England, YO1 7EP.
