Cinego Shorts is initiating a special 2-day virtual screening to highlight Mental Health through specifically curated films with the aim of tackling the stigma and discrimination associated with the health condition on the occasion of World Mental Health Day 2021.

We invite all the filmmakers to submit their films that explore the concept of Mental Health, and highlight various ways that this term can be understood and reflected. If you think your story is compelling and fits within the theme, then submit your films and be a part of this virtual event.

*There is no entry fee to submit a film.
