Mad in America’s International Film Festival Mission: To foster the pursuit of social justice and human rights by bringing together an international collective of voices, perspectives, and artistic presentations that challenge the current mental health system and explore mainstream and alternative understandings of “mental illness.”

We welcome short- and feature-length film submissions of varying style, treatment, and production technique that embody the Film Festival’s mission. We encourage submissions from outside the United States, as well as from high school and college students.
