Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
Implicit in this initiative is the priority of intersectoral cultural, academic and technological complementarities for free access to audiovisual works by different audiences. It establishes the design of actions aimed at raising awareness and lines of training in audio-description and subtitling techniques for audiovisual works to make this content accessible to people with sensory disabilities.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
In general, a contribution has been made to diversify the circulation and information of audiovisual works by Latin American indigenous and community creation groups through various channels, such as specialized web pages within the Portal www.cinelatinoamericano.org/FNCLen which collect audiovisual and literary works, events and news, related to women, community films, accessibility rights of socially disadvantaged populations, and directories of accessible film files, among others. A contribution was made to raising awareness and training audiovisual creators and producers and related institutions in the need to generate products that are accessible to persons with sensory disabilities. At the same time, workshops were held with this population to train them in the use of media such as audio description and to stimulate their creative potential and artistic appreciation. Actions to seek funding were promoted, such as the presentation to the International Fund for Cultural Diversity's Call. The International Film and Television School maintains its open and public calls that advocate for interculturality, with no limitations on gender or other grounds that may limit human rights. We encouraged a study that updates the situation of lost audiences in Latin America and the Caribbean, their realities and rights to creation, dissemination, and enjoyment in the Digital Era.
