The 2012 Scottish Mental Health Film Festival

The international film submission for the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival 2012 is now open. The 2012 Scottish Mental Health Film Festival is currently inviting submissions for the 2012 awards.

If you have a film or film project that is underway or completed and links to mental health, then the organizers want to hear from you.

This annual open film submission gives film-makers the opportunity to share their work and ideas with audiences across Scotland and internationally.

Promote Your Film on One of the Largest Arts and Health Events in the World!

In its broadest sense ‘mental health’ is a term which touches most aspects of our lives; from our relationships to how we respond to the world around us. The organizers are looking for films which show that a mental health identity is something we all have, and something we all need to prioritize from time to time.

Films can address specific mental health issues, but may also encourage innovative and diverse perspectives.

Previous winning submissions have looked at topics such as moving home, aging, grief, loss, endurance, support, friendship, equality, sport, music, childhood as well as films about specific diagnoses or conditions.

The sixth annual Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival (2012) will take place across (theaters, cinemas, libraries and community halls in) Scotland throughout October 2012.

In 2012, winning films will also be announced in several different categories.
