Intras, mental health and culture: ‘Visionando’
In Intras we think that mental health is a very broad term that recognizes cultural, social, philosophical and historical aspects beyond the purely biological and sanitary. That is why this Festival seeks to collect and show all possible views in order to make visible different realities and combat the stigmas associated with mental health problems.

From this perspective we present the I Festival of short films on mental health 'Visionando' to be held between October and November 2024 in the city of Valladolid as the main venue.

Why ‘Visionando’?
‘Visionando' was born in 2023 as a film series with the collaboration of the City Council of Valladolid, creating a space in the city to reflect on mental health. In the last quarter of the year, 5 films were screened followed by a colloquium with mental health, film and media professionals. They addressed different perspectives on mental health: family, emotional and social relationships, care, the passage through psychiatric units, new technologies and their impact, gender violence and its therapeutic approach, community integration and the importance of employment as a normalizing tool.

Among all the fiction and documentary short films selected for the competition, a SPECIALIZED JURY made up of relevant people from the world of cinema, mental health and social services will decide on the awarding of the following prizes:

• Jury prize for the best fiction short film (400 €).

• Jury prize for the best documentary short film (400 €).

• Audience award for best fiction short film (recognition trophy).

• Audience award for the best documentary short film (recognition trophy).
