Cinesin is a Valencian entity that was born in 2008 and promotes the social and labour inclusion of people with functional diversity through audiovisual media through 3 ways:training, production and communication. 


Cinesin has developed a training plan with the objective of enhancing the integration of people with functional diversity, adapting audiovisual productions according to their specific needs (subtitling, audio description, etc.), making visible the creativity and participation of this collective in festivals and screenings, and collaborating with different private and public entities to showcase the task carried out by this Valencian entity. The training plan includes 5 proposals destined to different audiences and adapted according to their characteristics, needs and possibilities:

Cinema workshop ‘The Path + Short towards Integration’
