How can you help?
Your participation enables us to achieve a high accessibility for people with disabilities for our and general events at the Hangar 21 in Detmold. The overall package includes a high-brightness and high-contrast video projector, which offers us an extensive range of display options, in particular, a "picture-in-picture" function for sign language, such as the Panasonic PT-DZ21; As well as a mobile auditorium system for the visually impaired people to achieve the widest possible immersion in the festival for people with and without disabilities.

How much do we need?
At the moment we are missing 10.000 Euros for the realization of the project (as of 20.02.2019] we will correct the figures weekly), for the acquisition and technical implementation.

With your help - What's the future like?
In the coming festival years, inclusion and interculturality will be the guiding theme of the ISFF. That is why the 15th ISFF has the motto: "Films for All - Everybody has the right to participate in cultural life" and offers the possibility of barrier-free film viewing and listening.

In order for this to be a complete success for all concerned, ie for people with and without disabilities, we need your help.

What do we want with these devices?
In the following years, we want to continuously provide audio-description movie blocks for the blind and visually impaired, for the hearing impaired with subtitles and sign language, thus offering the possibility of a complete inclusive immersion of people with disabilities in our festival. In addition to our barrier-free cinema (The Cube), there also will be a professional audio description via headphones, as well as font and sign language interpreters in the discussions between the films, as well as the opening and award ceremony.

What else is there besides short-Films?
In addition to the short films,  art and culture eventsare also part of the festival: With more than 2,200 square meters of event space, Hangar 21 offers versatile spaces for numerous outdoor and indoor activities, intercultural art events, several exhibitions, light and water film shows, performances and videos. installations. "Get Your Own Picture" and "Beats to Think" film workshops will be held, in which all film-loving people with and without disabilities can participate. Here, too, the diverse needs of people with disabilities are addressed. Which is why it is also important in art offers, workshops, lectures and symposia that we want to contribute to the success of our event together with all people, senses and ideas. This is our aspiration.
