The Film Event Accessibility Scorecard

Black background, laurels with the words Accessibility Scorecard centered

Film Festival Alliance is proud to support the work of FWD-Doc in partnership with Film Event Accessibility Working Group in association with 1IN4 Coalition.

Have you recently attended a Film Event?

Festivals, filmmakers, professionals, and event attendees can access the Scorecard below, where users can provide responses about their experiences with festivals and film events.

The Scorecard will then provide documented feedback from attendees (filmmakers, professionals, and audience) on the current state of accessibility so that film events can identify strategies to make their events more inclusive.

In addition to feedback on viewing experiences, the Scorecard will seek feedback from event attendees on several areas of accessibility, including the red carpets, stage, networking, and related events.

If you have recently attended a film event, we want to hear your experience as a filmmaker, speaker, panelist, patron, and more. Take 15 minutes to participate in our survey and provide event organizers with meaningful feedback that can help them create more accessible events.

Would you like to receive the survey responses associated with your festival from the Film Event Accessibility Scorecard?

Please use the form below to sign up to receive your data from the Film Event Accessibility Scorecard. To participate, we need the following information:

  • Your Festival Name

  • City and State for additional identification of your festival

  • Contact Information if we have questions about your participation

  • Email for where you want to receive the responses. We recommend a general inbox like accessibility@ or directly to your Accessibility staff.
