Cinema for the hearing impaired

The CSTM system is a technical solution which opens the door for hearing impaired audiences to film screenings in average cinemas. PORTLINGUA uses the device for screening Czech subtitles to Czech films and prepares subtitles for the hearing impaired in cinemas and film clubs as part of the project called Cinema for the Hearing Impaired (KND). Since 2005 we have been opening film screenings to the hearing impaired at some film festivals.

Thanks to the kind contribution of the Film Servis Festival Karlovy Vary, a.s. PORTLINGUA has been preparing (in cooperation with the Harvest Films, o.s. civic organisation) extra subtitled screenings which enable hearing impaired viewers at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival to go and see films in Czech sound version.

We add to the festival’s offer so that the hearing impaired visitors can also go and see the majority of festival screenings.

The KND cooperates on screenings of educational documentaries for the hearing impaired that take place each year also in Český Krumlov, České Budějovice and in Prague as part of the EKOFILM festival.
