This film is a special project of inclusive cinema in Ukraine. With the support of EVERLEGAL and Techiia Holding, the film is available for viewing in the cinema for people with hearing and visual impairments.
Did you know that there are about 1 million people with hearing and vision impairments in Ukraine? Many of them have never been to a cinema in their lives!
But now films in Ukraine are becoming available thanks to the inclusive cinema - just such a film is "My Grandfather - Father Frost".
Modern technologies were used to create a version of this film that is accessible to the widest possible range of viewers, including those with visual and hearing impairments. The project of inclusive cinema in Ukraine is the initiative of the NGO "Fight for Right". The main purpose of this initiative is to provide accessible video content (films, TV shows, cartoons) for people with hearing and visual impairments by creating audio recordings and adapted subtitles and placing them on the Earcatch and Subcatch mobile platforms.

Now, using modern technologies, people with disabilities can go to the cinema and watch a film on an equal basis with other people. The main goal of such a project is to make the availability of films a principle, not an accident.
Support for this project is important for Sustainability direction in EVERLEGAL.
Creation of accessible films for people with visual and hearing impairments is a huge step towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations, namely:
We strive to continuously increase our contribution to sustainable development in Ukraine by supporting such unique initiatives.
