I share with you, as well this media advisor note to all journalists

Dear Journalists,

The World Health Organization 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.
