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