The Global Health Film Festival believes that film has the power to communicate stories, to stir emotions, to inspire, to encourage action and to redress inequities in health. The primary objective of the Festival is to use film, animation and immersive media as a catalyst for discussion and change on global health issues.

This year's Global Health Film Festival takes place on 08-09 December 2017 at the Barbican in Central London. The two-day festival will combine a mix of feature films, premieres, short films, keynote presentations, workshops and virtual reality installations with several sessions in parallel in order for delegates to tailor their experience.

We invite film submissions of short (25 minutes or less) and feature (over 25 minutes) length on any global health topic. Global health topics may include LGBT rights, maternal and neonatal health, healthy ageing, mental health, refugee health, climate change, emerging infections, communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases.
