Mental will be hosting mutliple events in conjunction with Canada's Mental Health Week, May 3 - 6, 2017. Full festival and event details to be released April 2017.
Mental Film Festival (Mental) uses art to empower communities and shift perspective on mental health. We do this through a series of bold, fun and inspirational community events aimed to reduce stigma and promote awareness around mental health and addiction using film and art as a conduit for engagement. Art creates a universal language that cuts across cultural, racial, social and economic barriers. As a byproduct of the pure and simple enjoyment of the arts, community dialogue is enhanced and awareness is increased.
