Subtivals, a program to project Advanced SubStation Alpha (ASS, .ass), Subrip (.srt) and simple text (*.txt) subtitles.
Hard copies for film festivals do not always carry subtitles, especially for the hard-of-hearing.
Subtivals goals are the projection and the control of subtitles superimposed on a cinema screen; Projecting subtitles on top of another screen is called soft-titling, surtitling, supertitling or even sometimes electronic subtitles, virtual subtitles.
Subtivals is fully automatic, but its semi-manual mode also allows to project subtitles at theaters (or opera, ballets, concerts and other cultural events...).
