Adelaide Film Festival recognises the Companion Card at all events, capacity allowing. Call (08) 7225 2729 to book or visit the Box Office at the GU Film House, 128 Hindley Street.

 

Captioning and Audio Description

We will be offering a selection of captioned, subtitled and audio- described screenings. Please check back after the full festival program has been announced for a full listing of sessions.

 

Auslan Interpreting

On request, we can provide an Auslan interpreter at some of our events. To request an interpreter, fill out the Request an Auslan Interpreter form.

 

Relaxed Film Screenings

There will be some Relaxed Screenings during the festival. These screenings have been adapted to reduce anxiety and create a supportive atmosphere for people with disability including autism spectrum conditions, sensory or learning disabilities.
There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement among the audience and small changes made to the light and sound effects. Audience members can enter and exit the venue throughout the show.
Visual Stories will be available to help visitors prepare for their visit to the cinema.
Please check back after the full festival program has been announced for a full listing of sessions.
