Health in Focus Film Festival

December 1, 2022 - December 3, 2022

Free – $42

The mission of the Health in Focus Film Festival is to improve the health of populations by pairing compelling visual stories with thoughtful discussion. The schedule consists of three invited, feature-length films, a panel discussion, and three blocks of short films. The themes for the short film blocks are “The world as it is,” “Inequities,” and “Looking ahead.” Awards will be granted to the best short film, as selected by a jury, as well as an audience favorite and a young filmmaker.

  • The world as it is – conditions that keep populations from being healthy and those that are characteristic of unhealthy populations. Examples: hate, incarceration, suicide, substance use, climate change, reproductive justice, firearm violence
  • Inequities – a focus on marginalized populations. Examples: economic, gender, race, LGBTQIA+, transgender, immigrants, refugees
  • Looking ahead – aspirations for the future of health. Examples: aging, activism, urban health, prevention, innovation, media, social movements, nurturing empathy
