We have some really exciting headline films confirmed in this year's programme and will release details of these over the summer.

We now invite 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 ageing, mental health, refugee health, climate change, emerging infections, communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases.

The earlybird deadline for submissions is 31 July 2017 and the final deadline is 31 August 2017.

Tickets will go on sale in September - more details to follow shortly!
