International Film Competition

The International Film Awards submission is now OPEN. 

We invite filmmakers to submit films that explore mental health, and the various ways that this term can be understood and reflected. The work can address specific mental health issues, but the festival is also keen to encourage innovative and diverse perspectives. 

For further information, please visit the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival on Film Freeway
