International Film Competition

The International Film Awards submission is now OPEN.

We're interested in 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. Please visit our website for details of previous award winners and official selections.

Films completed after 1st January 2017 of any length and genre are eligible, provided that they have not been submitted to the festival before.

For full guidelines and to submit, please visit the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival on Film Freeway


Writing Competition

The Writing Competition, in partnership with Bipolar Scotland is now CLOSED. We will announce details of the next competition later in 2019.
