More Information

WHO is launching its first ever film festival on 16, 21 and 22 May 2020. The WHO Health for All Film Festival invites independent film-makers, production companies, NGOs, communities, students, and film schools from around the world to submit their original short films on health. The Film Festival aims to recruit a new generation of film and video innovators to champion and promote global health issues. Films are a powerful way to raise awareness, improve understanding and encourage action.

The submissions can be on any health issue and/or social and environmental determinants of health for the first two categories (non-fiction and animation). The third category focuses on nurses or midwives to pay tribute to the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife in 2020. Only films completed between 1 January 2017 and 30 January 2020 are eligible for the festival. Closing date for entries is 30 January 2020.
