Can I submit a film that has already been created?

Films created should be geared towards the topics selected for the competition year of the Singapore Mental Health Film Festival Youth Competition. 

The 2021 Youth Competition topics are: 

  1. Cyber-Bullying & Trauma
  2. Life Transitions
  3. Young Caregivers
  4. Recovery
  5. Suicide Prevention

Films submitted should not have been screened or submitted to other platforms or festivals prior to SMHFF Youth Competition Premiere, which usually happens annually in April/May.

What do you mean by eligible?

Because we want to create the best learning and fair environment for all youths who are interested to submit a film to the festival, they will need to submit a synopsis or idea.

The reason for that is also because the selection basis for the competition is largely based on a synopsis or idea that they have. Hence we would really love to give opportunities to the ones who have given some thought about what is it about the topic of mental health that they want to talk about and how they can translate that message into film.
