The APHA Global Public Health Film Festival

APHA Global Public Health Film Festival

Join Us For the Show!

APHA's Global Public Health Film Festival aims to be a catalyst in the movement toward a healthier nation and globe by sparking the conversation about health in creative ways. The film festival features public health films of all varieties and include this year's theme, "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health" and other general public health areas that explore and highlight public health locally, nationally and globally. We highlight feature films, documentaries, narratives, public service announcements, educational videos, short clips and more. The films and related multimedia educate, inspire and encourage change for a healthier future!

Join us as we view specially selected films Sunday through Tuesday, each immediately followed by a post-screening panel discussion with experts and those who made these films possible. Check the complete film festival schedule in the APHA 2017 Mobile App or in the Online Program. All films will be shown in GWCC, B406AB.
