Matchbox Cinesub is our professional subtitling arm. Our team has 10+ years’ experience subtitling for access, alongside our 10+ years’ experience in film exhibition. As exhibitors and event producers ourselves, we know what’s required technically, creatively and in terms of scheduling and budget.
We specialise in helping film festivals make their full programmes accessible and in working with film-makers and artists to ensure their work sincerely meets the demands of access provision while preserving the integrity of their work. We pride ourselves on producing the best, exhibition-quality descriptive subtitles no matter the initial context, ensuring our work can have a legacy in future use, in any number of contexts.
Since 2019, we’ve captioned over 1,000 films and short films. In 2020, Matchbox won a National Lottery Award in the Art/Culture/Film category, for efforts producing SDH/captions for D/deaf audiences.
