APHA Public Health Film Festival

APHA Global Public Health Film Festival

Join Us For the Show!

The APHA Public Health Film Festival is a unique component of the Annual Meeting. The festival offers a versatile way to learn and spark the conversation about health in creative ways. The film festival features public health films of all types and topics, including theme-related pieces and those that explore and highlight public health locally, nationally and globally. Our goal is to screen films that demonstrate, educate, inspire and encourage a change for a healthier future.

The Film Festival Includes:

  • Feature Film sessions (FF) — Invited, full-length films that are followed by a panel discussion with filmmakers and topic experts. 
  • General Film sessions (GF) — Films that are 30 minutes and under. They include short animations, documentaries, narratives, promos and PSAs.

Be a Part of the Show:

  • Submit a Feature Film — The film festival committee is accepting submissions for feature films specifically related to COVID-19 and systemic racism against black Americans. The Feature Films are traditionally longer films (30 min. or more), but shorter films will be considered. Participants in the feature film sessions will be asked to participate in a live discussion after the film is screened. All films must be captioned when uploaded. Submit now (deadline: July 1)
