Talking It Out is an ongoing arts festival dedicated to promoting mental health awareness to audiences worldwide since 2020. In 2024, over the course of May, we will spend Mental Health Awareness Month presenting the 3rd Annual Talking It Out Virtual Film Festival both online via YouTube livestream to the public. Filmmakers around the world will be invited to submit films centered around the theme of mental health awareness.


All films must explore the topic of living with mental health issues. This may include anxiety, depression, PTSD, neurodiversity, social isolation, dementia, etc. All genres are welcome.
