Conclusions Bibliography Index Reviews "Up-to-date, methodical, insightful, innovative and masterly interdisciplinary, this book extends the frontiers of our discipline and is destined to become a seminal contribution to both Film Studies and Translation Studies. Pablo’s arresting way of communicating ideas confirms his reputation as one of the finest scholars in translation today. A must-read, must-have book!" Professor Jorge Díaz Cintas, University College London, UK "This wonderfully wide-ranging and thoroughly researched book demonstrates in fascinating detail the extent to which the use (and too frequent abuse) of subtitles, voice overs and different national dubbing practices continue to significantly mediate our experience of watching films on television and in the cinema. Accessible Filmmaking should be read by every kind of practising filmmaker and critic, as well as by all media studies lecturers, students, international film distributors and TV executives." Mike Dibb, Bafta-winning director of Ways of Seeing (1972) and Emmy-winning director of The Miles Davis Story (2001). "Making films accessible across the world, and to those who have difficulty seeing or hearing, is something we should take seriously. Accessible filmmaking is clearly a very important subject that will give us a lot to think about. This book will make a valuable contribution to this and I wish it well." Ken Loach, Film Director "In a ground- breaking book Pablo Romero-Fresco considers why accessibility has been overlooked in film production. He also convincingly proposes strategies for its integration both in the film-making process and in the discipline of Film Studies. Written in a clear style and covering a wide range of interrelated issues concerning production and reception, this timely, clear and thought-provoking book will be essential reading for practitioners, teachers and students interested in the accessibility of films." Peter William Evans, Emeritus Professor of Film Studies, Queen Mary University of London, UK About the Author Pablo Romero-Fresco is a Ramón y Cajal researcher at Universidade de Vigo (Spain) and Honorary Professor of Translation and Filmmaking at the University of Roehampton (UK).
