About our events
Opening doors and breaking down barriers for disabled audiences
A three-year project supported by Film Hub Midlands that seeks to significantly improve access to cinema for disabled audiences in the West Midlands. MAC will pilot new programmes and events to ensure that disabled people can experience film in an accessible environment, as well as seeing themselves reflected on screen.
Explore the programme
Join artist Sarah Hamilton Baker in MAC’s cinema for a sensory journey through film. In these monthly relaxed screenings you will be invited to touch, smell and feel your way through a collection of shorts.
Disability on film (DOF)
A season of films which look at how disabled people have been portrayed on screen, put together by Conor O’Donovan, a guest programmer with lived experience of disability who is keen to get audiences to think beyond the usual tropes.
We are also improving access across our wider cinema programme at MAC with increased use of descriptive subtitles and audio description, and greater representation of disabled stories and voices.
