The Global Health Film Festival is accepting film submissions of short (25 minutes or less) and feature (over 25 minutes) length on any global health topic. Global health topics may include LGBT rights, maternal and neonatal health, healthy aging, mental health, refugee health, climate change, emerging infections, communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases. A £10,000 Planetary Health Film Prize will be awarded to the film that sets out the most compelling case and calls to action.

The Global Health Film Festival believes that film has the power to communicate stories, to stir emotions, to inspire, to encourage action and to redress inequities in health. The primary objective of the Festival is to use film, animation and immersive media as a catalyst for discussion and change on global health issues.

This year's Global Health Film Festival takes place on 07-09 December 2018 in Central London. The two-day festival will combine a mix of feature films, premieres, short films, keynote presentations, workshops and virtual reality installations with several sessions in parallel in order for delegates to tailor their experience.
