Why #CaptionsMatter

One in six of us across the UK have some form of hearing loss. Many deaf and hard-of-hearing people rely on captions, so going to a film screening can be a difficult and isolating experience for them when access isn't available. That's why we've set up The Film Bunch.

At The Film Bunch, we showcase short films from upcoming filmmakers from around the world. Our mission is to improve access for deaf and hard-of-hearing people to mainstream short films, so we provide subtitles, British Sign Language interpreters and live captioning at our events.

Every month, we hold a short film screening and networking event in East London to bring film fans together. It’s a chance for people to indulge themselves in great films, in great company. We mix it up with Q&As, quizzes and themed events. Films span a variety of genres and must be under 20 minutes.

We're campaigning for better access in the media industry. Filmmakers can benefit from adding subtitles to their films - it can increase their audience, including deaf/hard-of-hearing viewers and non-native English speakers. You can see our subtitle guide here.

Our events create an open and supportive space for everyone to connect and collaborate.
