Canberra International Mental Health Film Festival is open for submissions

Entries are open for the 2nd Annual This Is My Brave Canberra International Mental Health Film Festival. We are looking for film submissions that help break the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.

This Is My Brave Australia is an arts based, mental health charity organisation dedicated to promoting a national conversation around mental health through telling stories of people with lived experience of mental illness. Our aim is to break the stigma and discrimination that surrounds mental illness by exposing people to stories that truly reflect the lived experience in contrast to the exploitative and sensationalised depictions of mental illness that proliferate through mainstream media.

The criteria for film submissions are:

*Provide and inspiring voice for social justice and human rights for people with mental illness
*Highlights positive contributions made by mental health consumers.
*Fight Stigma and defies stereotypes associated with mental illness
*Share real-life stories of people with mental health concerns
