Make your film accessible for the festival season by creating captions. Adding captions to your film is an easy and affordable way to help it reach a wider audience. Closed captioning is encouraged for all films that will be screened at the New Orleans Film Festival (Nov 6-22, 2020). Most OTT media and streaming services also require closed captioning and have specific guidelines for captioning formats. Plus, about 15% of Americans are Deaf or hard-of-hearing, so adding captions to your film ensures that these viewers can understand and engage with your story.
