F-NO: The Health and Justice Film Festival is focused on highlighting filmmakers that can spur social, political, and environmental change. Not only do we showcase films who shine a light on public health and social justice issues, we provide a platform for panel discussions and community engagement. At F-NO, we believe that storytelling has the power to inform, educate, and mobilize audiences around a variety of health concerns. F-NO, also known as Film New Orleans, is dedicated to supporting international and local artists in the culturally vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Public health and social justice go hand-in-hand. This broad and inclusive lens involves an array of topics, from gun violence prevention and mass incarceration to infectious disease awareness, reproductive justice and much more. Last year, subjects portrayed in our film festival included international health, HIV/AIDS awareness, health disparities across racial lines, trauma, indigenous injustice, and environmental health.
F-NO teamed with Tulane University for the Public Health Film Festival last year, and now in our second year, F-NO is moving locations to The Broad Theater in central New Orleans. Screenings, discussions and an afterparty will take place during this three-day event. We invite you to submit your film and be a part the Health and Justice Film Festival.
Multiple categories in both shorts and feature films. Awards are presented on the last day of the festival.
All entries must be received by March 15, 2020 to be eligible.
There is no limit on the number of films you can submit; however, each film submitted by you must be original and different from any other film submitted by you and accompanied by its own completed submission form and participant agreement.

By submitting your film for consideration to the 2nd Annual F-NO: The Public Health Film Festival, you agree to allow our festival to screen your film if it is an official selection of the festival and, therefore, are obligated to your commitment.
