Inclusive Cinema Culture is a right, not a privilege

Inclusive Cinema Culture is a right not a privilege

It is essential to recognize that culture is not just about the information or stimulus we receive daily. Culture and knowledge make us grow. They strengthen our character and our identity as individuals.

Fortunately, society tends to be more inclusive.A political commitment has been made in Spain so that all public products, goods, and services are accessible. This commitment also includes artistic displays, spaces, and cultural events. Therefore, there has been an increase in productions that present audio-described content, with accessible subtitling and sign language.

Our Inclusive Philosophy

Although you can find articles and content of all kinds on accessibility and cultural inclusion, sometimes less is more.

Here is a summary of our work philosophy in just 3 points:

Previous knowledge of the accessible tools, languages and forms of communication used by people with disabilities.
Creative development of accessibility, from the script/briefing to distribution.
Active participation of users with disabilities in the creative process and design of the work.Also, joint testing of the final product.
Vicente, Ester y Juan Carlos, members of Blues Time’s inclusive team. By Ruth Dupiereux.

It doesn’t matter the genre, the type of project, or the format. It does not matter the business sector, the type of production, the language, or the place where we work. All our proposals are governed by the same values ​​of quality and inclusive methodologies. We are always offering a project suited to the needs of the client and a universal audience.

The Accessibility Report

WHAT IS THE ACCESSIBILITY REPORT?

The Accessibility Report is an interactive manual. It is divided into ten sections, which contain the different phases of the creative process of this film.
