We primarily work with venues that are wheel-chair accessible and have wheel-chair accessible toilets. This will be clearly communicated in the promotion of our events.
All of our festival volunteers will be trained to operate lifts, offer guidance etc.
We aim to work with venues that offer gender-neutral toilets.
For our annual festival, we create a series of print materials (brochure, poster etc.). Text-only and large print versions of these materials are made available for download online and at the festival box office.
When possible we create a Quiet Space at our festival venues.
Seating at our venues varies but is always available. If you have questions or concerns, or would like to reserve seating please contact email@example.com.
We aim to work with venues where assistance dogs are welcome.
Access at Film Screenings
Sliding Scale Tickets
In order to make Femspectives more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price of £0-£8 for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask for your honesty!
For more information, visit our Ticket Info page.
Start + End Times
Start and end times of all events are noted on our event pages on our website, Facebook events and Eventbrite pages.
Key to Access Symbols
We use the following access symbols in our print materials and online to highlight events with post-screening discussions, closed captions and BSL interpretation.
Subtitles + Captions
We screen all films with English subtitles and aim to screen as many films as possible with captions.
We strive to provide BSL interpretation for some of our events and will communicate this clearly in our event promotion.
Some of our events are Relaxed Screenings (autism-friendly) with lower volume, increased light levels and more space to move around.
Many of our events are followed by post-screening discussions. These are clearly marked in event promotion. Our discussions are participatory and everyone is welcome to contribute.
We provide an overview of content warnings for our public screenings.
During the festival, we have a Travel Fund available for anyone who needs support getting to/from our venues in order to attend our events.
For more info, visit our Travel Fund page.
During the festival, we are happy to provide translations for individuals and groups who are not confident to converse entirely in English. If you’d like to have a translator present or receive translated programme notes, please contact us via email with your language requirements and which events you would like to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safe Space Policy
Our Safe Space Policy applies throughout the duration of the festival. Please make yourself familiar with this document. If you have any concerns, get in touch with the festival organisers via email on email@example.com or in person at one of our events.
