The inaugural Australia Global Health Film Festival has been developed and will be delivered in partnership with the Australian Global Health Alliance on 16-26 August.
The programme will feature excellent storytelling from all around the world, with a strong focus on planetary health, inequity, gender violence and youth activism. The programme has been drawn from previous Global Health Film Festival editions and screenings, alongside some recent more local titles.
