CEA invite exhibitors to take part in World Autism Awareness Day

The CEA are inviting UK exhibitors to participate in World Autism Awareness Day by hosting ‘Autism Friendly Screenings’ during Thursday 26 March – Thursday 8 April.

Autism Friendly Screenings (AFS) are subtly adapted screenings to create an environment that is welcoming for people with autism, learning disabilities and cognitive disorders. They have sound levels turned down, the lights left at a low level and film-goers are able to make noise and sit where they feel comfortable. Screenings will be promoted by Dimensions, The National Autistic Society and YourLocalCinema.com.

For more information on how to host AFS and to ensure that your screenings are promoted on all platforms please contact Grainne Peat at the CEA on grainne.peat@cinemauk.org.uk.
