What's new this year: CC for the hearing impaired
The Miami Jewish Film Festival has launched a new initiative that is dedicated to creating closed captioning for English language films premiering online through its virtual festival. By providing closed captioning to each of these films, MJFF will enable people with hearing and other disabilities to have better access to the virtual movies shown.
The Miami Jewish Film Festival is a program of the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), a subsidiary of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.
