Do you know what day it is? It’s Mental Filmness Eve!
Sunday, October 10th, is World Mental Health Day, a day designated to draw awareness to mental health struggles. And tomorrow evening, at 7 p.m., for free, viewers around the world will be able to unlock films highlighting the theme of mental health from a diversity of viewpoints and cultures, highlighting a variety of different mental illnesses, told in a variety of ways: documentary, animation, comedy, even horror and sci-fi.
So, if you haven’t done so, order a FREE pass here to unlock the films: https://mentalfilmness2021.eventive.org/passes/buy
Films will be available to unlock and view at your leisure until November 1st. Passes will also be freely available during that time so if you’re enjoying what you see feel free to spread the word!
Make sure you don’t overlook the creator interview section this year, which is the most expansive yet: https://mentalfilmness2021.eventive.org/interviews2021
Your vote matters! All films should be available for virtual balloting (including each individual short) so cast votes for your favorites and we’ll give out some honorary awards at the end.
Which film are you looking forward to the most? Spoiler alert: They’re all incredible, in their own way. https://mentalfilmness2021.eventive.org/films
THANK YOU for what has *already* become the biggest (I would never say best) season so far in terms of engagement and passes ordered. All a ragtag passion project film festival can hope is to grow a little every year, and it is so very heartening to see that happening.
Keep an eye on this reactivated webpage, our new Twitter, https://twitter.com/MentalFilmness, and http://www.facebook.com/mentalfilmness for more updates. It looks like we have a couple more interviews coming down the pipeline, including a big bombshell I am excited to announce this weekend! A happy festival to all!
