Learn how to make deaf-accessible films and festivals. A hearing filmmaker, Maya Washington, made a short film about a Deaf poet. Meanwhile, she screened the film at 26 international festivals. During this time, she learned lessons about accessibility for deaf people in films and at film festivals. She therefore shares what she learns for other filmmakers and event organizers. She encourages people to support deaf film festivals, and to make online content accessible. Additionally, she shares information about technology for providing deaf-accessible films and festivals.
