Brooklyn is home to several film festivals throughout the year. Some draw attention to themes in film or look to support the independent film community, while others bring awareness to powerful issues faced by many people throughout the world.
The 10th Annual NYC Mental Health Film Festival, which is being held this month at St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights, will be a two-day celebration of films that positively portray the mental health community.
A line-up of documentaries and short films that promise to tell intimate and thought-provoking stories of those living with mental illness will be presented.
The festival is co-sponsored by the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services and Community Access. Both organizations give a voice to members of the mental health community.
Filmmaker Q&A sessions, audience discussions and a free lunch are offered during the weekend festivities.
The Film Festival will be held Saturday & Sunday, May 17th & 18th (from 11am to 5pm) at St. Francis College, 182 Remsen Street.
Tickets available via their website or at the door. Check our their event website for trailers of the festival’s featured films!
