Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival – Call For Submissions
Deadline: Friday 29 August 2008
The Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival is the national arts festival in Scotland which explores mental health. It has its base in Glasgow, with events taking place all over Scotland between the 1st and 19th of October 2008. The festival brings together a wide range of mental health organisations, arts organisations, community groups and artists, embracing approaches including film, visual art, drama, literature, music and comedy.
The core purpose of the film festival is to raise awareness and tackle the stigma and discrimination related to mental health issues, and to promote an understanding of an individual’s rights and recovery. They welcome submissions that address these issues directly and explore them in a broader context. They welcome films in different styles, for example; documentary, drama or animation and any length (however please note that the nature of the festival means it easier to accommodate shorter films).
