Singapore Mental Health Film Festival’s vision is to provide an inclusive and safe platform for stories about recovery and resilience.
The Festival’s mission is to use film as a catalyst to advocate and promote conversations about mental health.
The Singapore Mental Health Film Festival provides a safe platform for audiences to learn more about different aspects of mental health through a series of films, panel conversations and workshops. As mental health awareness continues growing in Singapore, it is also crucial to acknowledge the importance of managing our emotions and discomforts on the subject. Only in doing so can we take meaningful steps to support the mental health of our children, youths and communities.
Bringing together locale & international films, coupled with curated panel conversations comprising of diverse voices, & mindfulness workshops.
Dedicated to empowering and enriching the youth community, this competition seeks to widen youths’ perspectives on mental health in Singapore through film production.
Inspire and educate corporates, youth and general public on importance and nuances of mental well-being, and stories of resilience and recovery.
Connect through conversations and stories – both at the individual and community level. In doing so, we hope to heal, nurture, and inspire our audiences.
ALL OF US HAVE A PART TO PLAY TO CO-CREATE A FUTURE FIT FOR ALL HUMANS
By acknowledging that mental health is an important facet of overall well–being — and its significant impact on society today — the Festival hopes to facilitate genuine dialogue that will reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
Join us in bringing together a community to speak of the unspoken; to support each other through our individual journeys so that we can celebrate and grieve as a collective. With your support, we can continue to work towards normalising mental health conversations in Singapore.
We want to work towards creating a more inclusive Singapore; one that allows individuals to speak openly about mental health concerns without shame or discrimination – for self and others.
The Festival was founded by The Breathe Movement in 2018.
