Global Health Film has come a long way in recent years; we are now a registered charity and are privileged to work closely with a growing number of respected institutions and talented film-makers and health professionals in the UK and overseas.
Virtual and augmented reality, along with other types of immersive technologies, are rapidly becoming recognised as a new medium for storytelling and game-play - a development that we support every year through the Global Health Film Festival VR Exhibition, curated by our partners Crossover Labs.
Do you have excellent interpersonal skills, a friendly and professional approach, and a genuine passion for global health film? If so, we would love to hear from you! We are recruiting an expanded team of 30 volunteers this year to help us deliver this year's film festival.
From our early days as a modest project operating on a shoestring, we now have a global remit and many exciting plans in the pipeline. To support our growth and expansion, we are applying for registered charity status and are now seeking to appoint a number of Trustees to help take us to the next level.
We were delighted to welcome over 400 delegates from all over the world to the 2017 Global Health Film Festival at the Barbican in December for two days of screenings, workshops, interviews and exhibitions.
The programme featured over 30 documentaries and animations, five technical and creative workshops, and masterclasses, and a Global Health Virtual Reality Exhibition. Take a look at the 2017 highlights film which captures the essence and the energy of the two days.
Pollution that forces Faroe islanders to choose between health and tradition, the haunting cost of US drone strikes, and disease detectives hunting viruses that jump from animals to humans – these are just three of the vivid stories featured in this year’s Global Health Film Festival, taking place on 8-9 December at the Barbican Centre in London, UK.
