Get Well Soon
At the heart of healthcare is the desire to see someone get well soon. This category reflects the impact of health on the family or community and the desire to see healing. The emotion of watching someone recover from a health issue can be difficult and challenging, yet from that often comes inspiration and positivity.

Get Well Soon has AU$1000 prize money
My Journey
Our experiences in health are often personal journeys. It may be a patient’s experience, or that of their family and friends. It may be the career pathway of a nurse from novice to expert or the evolution of health issue in modern society, or a doctor trailing a new technique. These journeys are filled with emotion, grace and pride.

My Journey has AU$1000 prize money
Behind The Scenes
Many stories of health focus on those areas at the public face; however there are stories that go on behind the scenes that are equally important. This is an opportunity to explore the process of building hospitals, or providing cleaning, food, research, caring and more. These are stories that are just as important as the patients themselves and this is the moment to lend them a voice.

The Behind the Scenes category offers AU$1000 prize money

MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Reel Health International Short Film Festival (Reel Health) is a platform to tell real stories of health through the engaging medium of film.

Reel Health recognises that our attitude, inspiration and progression towards genuine health issues are advanced through conversation. With entries from all over the world, and through a variety of genres, this festival will start many conversations to ultimately benefit the greater health and arts communities.

The 2016 Reel Health International Short Film Festival is run by Monash Health, the largest public health service in Victoria, Australia.

Monash Health is privileged to be one of the few health networks in Australia to have an Arts in Health Program. This is an initiative that seeks external funding for internal projects with the support and endorsement of the EMT and Board.



ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Reel Health International Short Film Festival (Reel Health) is an opportunity to tell real stories, instigate a conversation and engage an audience to issues of real health.

Whether it triggers inspiration, hope, sadness, dignity or more, health issues touch us all and form stories of great significance.

Entering our fourth year, we are excited to see our concept grow, with refined categories and an expanded touring schedule. These films are viewed by industry health professionals and the general public across a number of formal screenings.

Please note that Reel Health is not an avenue for health-based companies to distribute corporate films of self-promotion. Any such films submitted to Reel Health will not be considered as a finalist.
