A New Lens
We’ve managed to secure screenings of the first ever Aotearoa Mental Health Film Festival at Globe Theatre – to help shift perspectives, one frame at a time. Dates: 27 November & 4 December Time: 8.15pm.
Led by the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand, the festival will feature locally made short films selected by a panel of mental health and film industry experts.
Representation matters. It affects how others see us and how we see ourselves. Unfortunately, nearly half of characters in film portrayed with mental health conditions are called names, dehumanised, or stigmatised by others.
Kua tae te wā! It's time for a new lens.
Update on ticket sales
Congratulations Hawkes Bay the two screenings of the Mental Health Foundation Film Festival - A New Lens have been sold out! Thank you for supporting us to support the Mental Health Foundation, your contribution enables them to continue to provide free support resources throughout Aotearoa
Due to timing restraints there won't be a Q&A panel discussion as mentioned on Eventbrite however Shaun Robinson the chief executive of the Mental Health Foundation will be in attendance for the first screening and Chris Taylor their Fundraising Manager will be at the second one. If there's interest we'll be organising an evening to give everyone who comes along an opportunity to talk about the films, we'll talk more about this at the screenings.
