About the festival

The 2019 Global Health Film Festival will place on Friday 06 and Saturday 07 December, at the Wellcome Collection in Bloomsbury, central London, bringing together 500 health advocates, filmmakers, journalists and the public for discussion and debate in all areas of global health.

Draft programme

The draft programme is here; please check back regularly for new material as the programme will be continuously updated. And there are some gems in the pipeline!

Please note that timings will inevitably shift a little but we will do our best to not make any significant changes after mid-October.
