The first Global Health Film Festival took place on 30-31 October 2015 at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, UK.

The festival showcased award-winning documentary films on global issues and offered film production workshops, in-depth panel discussions and pitching opportunities.   We believe 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 was to use film and media as a catalyst for discussion and change on global health issues.  Alongside feature and short film screenings and panel discussions we featured some exciting workshops that included:

Film for social change in low-resource settings (led by Medical Aid Films)
Guerrilla filmmaking and global health (led by What Took You So Long?)
Crowdfunding for global health film (led by Dartmouth Films)
Impact of global health film (led by BRITDOC Foundation)
Innovation at grass roots: filmmaking in low resource settings (led by BBC Media Action)
Virtual reality and social impact (led by VRSE works)
Media training for health advocate (led by Rockhopper TV)
Mass media and behaviour change- Media Million Lives Study (led by Development Media International)
