SMHFF Short Film Youth Competition is back for its third year! In 2021, we saw over 700 youths participate in the competition. Through the Festival’s platform, and multiple local and international collaborations, #SMHFFYouth have reached over 20,000 individuals around the world — and the numbers are still growing! By harnessing this powerful medium, we want to continue creating more avenues for our youth filmmakers to advocate for mental health/dementia issues.

Singapore Mental Health Film Festival Limited (SMHFF) is a Singapore-based and registered non-profit organisation.

SMHFF’s vision is to provide an inclusive and safe platform for stories about recovery and resilience.
