Festival Internazionale Del Cinema Sordo. Un festival per tutt*


Starting from a definition of deaf cinema as an artistic product created by and with deaf people, Francesca Di Meo (Istituto Statale Sordi, Rome) describes the fascinating reality of Cinedeaf Festival, the biggest archive of deaf cinema in Europe. All films are subtitled in Italian and English and all live events are translated into Italian Sign Language, International Sign Language and subtitled live. Di Meo also highlights the socio-cultural importance of this festival in terms of audience development and public engagement.
