People who have loved ones affected by a brain disorder or have been affected by a disorder themselves are encouraged to share their story by submitting a short video to the 2011 Neuro Film Festival competition.
The second annual contest, presented by the American Academy of Foundation, aims to raise awareness through video about the need to raise more money for research into the prevention, treatment and cure of brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, autism, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
Make a film telling your story – or the story of a loved one – affected by a brain disorder. Help in making the case for why more brain research is needed to find cures.
Each film should include the phrase, “Let’s put our brains together to support brain research”.
Winners of the 2011 Neuro Film Festival could win up to $1,000 and a chance to attend the Neuro Film Festival in Hawaii on 10 April 2011, in conjunction with the American Academy of Neurology’s 63rd Annual Meeting, which is the world’s largest meeting of neurologists.
