About us

My Sound Cinema is the first online cinema dedicated to audio described film and designed specifically with the blind and vision impaired community in mind.

It aims to fill the current gap in accessible provision of AD online. It was built through consultation with people with low or no residual eyesight, including a wonderful project consultant, an incredible and varied steering group as well as a very generous and proactive wider group of testers. It is also supported by RNIB and Sight Scotland.

This platform is the dream of a handful of people who believe that beautiful audio descriptions should be made easily accessible to the audiences they were made for. It was built on a small budget by an even smaller team.

We want you to have an enjoyable screening experience. Should you have any issues, please let us know — especially in these early days. We would also love to hear your comments and feedback, as these will contribute to improving the platform for everyone’s enjoyment. Please email hello@mysoundcinema.com with any queries, feedback — or just to say hello!

If you hold the rights to an audio-described film that you would like to make available or for feedback on the titles we currently offer, please email: programming@mysoundcinema.com.
