APHA's Public Health Film Festival showcases animations, documentaries, narratives, shorts, public service announcements, educational videos, and related films that demonstrate, educate, inspire, and encourage a change for a healthier future. While films from all disciplines of public health will be considered, films related to the APHA 2020 theme, “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Preventing Violence” are highly encouraged. The Film Festival screens films from around the world that explore and highlight public health locally, nationally, and globally. Festival organizers welcome all film submissions, including independent, community-created, and youth-created films. All submissions are peer-reviewed and scored before selection. All films must be 30 minutes or less. If you have a film longer than 30 minutes that you would like to submit, please contact email@example.com for more information.
