That the Parliament congratulates Caption This on organising pop-up cinemas that represent and engage disabled audiences; applauds this work, which strives to empower and prioritise deaf and disabled people through making films accessible; notes that Charlotte Little is a driving force behind the project, campaigning for a better experience for disabled audiences; understands that, throughout the year, Caption This will be putting on a series of hybrid and in-person screenings around Scotland, also offering a pay-what-you-can sliding scale, making it even more accessible, and hopes that this fantastic work can continue into the future.
