What We Look For…
Films may be of any length and genre – narrative and documentary features and shorts with a broad focus on mental health. The festival is committed to showing the boldest, most innovative work. Submissions that fuse multiple genres and art forms are particularly welcome. All entries must be in English and/or have English subtitles and should meet one or all of the following criteria:
- Inspiring voice for improving human rights of people affected by mental health issues
- Highlights positive contributions made by artists and filmmakers affected by mental health issues
- Fights stigma and defies stereotypes associated with mental illness
- Shares stories of rich characters and real people affected by mental health issues
Films should ideally have been produced within two years preceding festival.
