Accessibility Matters 

The Access Coordinator is an emerging below-the-line crew position that is becoming globally standardised within the screen industry to ensure access and inclusion for deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent (DDN) talent.  

Historically speaking, disabled people have been underrepresented in the screen industry, so how can we create a safe place on set that is accessible for all? Chelsea Bridges, Jared Flitcroft and Felicity Hamill share their mission to enhance industry standards using their skills as Access Coordinators.   

This new role can help everyone on set. It can also improve every stage of production, from development through to post-production, ensuring best practice is implemented that appropriately supports DDN cast and crew both in front of, and behind the camera.   

This talk is moderated by Dale Corlett and Tayla Hancock from the NZFC.
