Background:

The Health for All Film Festival has attracted nearly 1300 short film submissions - both amateur and professional - from more than 110 countries. The official selection was made of 15 titles in each of the three initial competition categories: video reports, animation films and films about nurses and midwives. Thanks to the diversity of submissions, an additional specific selection was recently added for short films about noncommunicable diseases and another one will be added later in the year for short films about mental health.
