Barrier-free open-air cinema hits the spot: We’re in this together now!
Just imagine, your bare toes dig through fresh grass, a gentle summer breeze carries away the soft murmurs while slowly the darkness of the approaching night sattles over you. Suddenly light falls onto the pop-up cinema screen, silence spreads. One or two courageous bats flitter quiet as a shadow over the screen.
For a short while the chirping of crickets and the rustle of poplars are the only sound to be heard but only until the movie sound directs all attention to the screen.
With their selection of risk-taking, uncomfortable, vibrant, inspirational, moving short film formats, in condensation of unusual perspectives on the world, Lisa Mai, festival director and her team, open up new room for infinite conversation potential.
Films Alone make no Film Festival. Film Festival are all People who participate and by doing so shape it.
24 film screenings with about 150 short films are on the program. Film discussions following the projections, workshops, concerts, parties and interventions in the public space enrich the program and invite to discuss, to love, to argue, to intervene, to dance and to celebrate. Every week there are barrier-free (barriereFREItage) days for deaf and people hard of hearing and the dotdotdot 4plus for people ages 4 and up.
Only those who can watch movies together can also talk about movies together. A »Cinema for everyone« has to come – independent of individual ability, ethnical as well as social origin, sex or age. An Utopia?
As the first film festival in Austria – imitation expressly desired! – dotdotdot focuses on inclusive strategies to bring people of different generations, people with and without disabilities and people with and without budgets to the cinema together. Accessibility is therefore not utopian, but its implementation requires concrete concepts and involves many small steps.
Hard Facts about the barrier-free festival:
- Friday is barrier-free-friday! For deaf and people hard of hearing. The open-air cinema as well as the great hall are equipped with an inductive sound system which is also in operation on other days of the week. Subtitles (HoH) in german are on and the film talks will be translated into Austrian sign language.
- Workshops for all! People no matter the age or the disability are invited to participate.
- The ticket fee is freely selectable: Pay as you can!
