After several accessible projects developed by Black Panther Films, a company of the Group, a new company was created, focused exclusively on the accessibility of audiovisual works and events for deaf people: INAMEDIA Accessible Contents. In this way, the Black Panther E&M Group consolidates its position within the market for accessible content through subtitling tools, Sign Language interpretation and an advanced synchronization technique between SL and subtitles.
At the head of this new business line of the Group and of the accessibility team is Inmaculada M. Pozo, a remarkable professional in the accessible audiovisual industry and with a wide career as Production Director. In addition to being named as one of the “real and influential women” by MÍA Magazine, under her supervision and direction, literary adaptations to 100% accessible fiction have been created, such as “La Casa de Bernarda Alba” or “Don Quijote de la Mancha”, versions made entirely in Sign Language. She has also been part of accessible educational projects such as the creation of the “History of Andalusia” and “History of the World” collection.
“INAMEDIA tries to be a company dedicated to the production of accessible contents to deaf people and those with a hearing impairment, as well as accessibility in audiovisual media and events,” says Inmaculada. “There is still much to do in terms of accessibility when deaf people can only go to the movies in certain sessions at Original Versions with Subtitles where the entire billboard is not included on many occasions. In Spain we are more than 1 million deaf people who, despite having our rights legally recognized, continue to encounter daily barriers to access to communication and culture that prevent us from participating in society in equal opportunities with the rest of citizens”, she clarifies.
The organization of the next editions of the successful Black Panther Deaf Films Festival will also be carried out by INAMEDIA in collaboration with Black Panther Films.
