MHRFF

A LISBON MENTAL HEALTH RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL

MHRFF WINNERS

JURY AWARD
BROTHER
by Lisanne Sweere, Netherlands
"The film addresses in an original and complex sensitive way the impact of mental illness on the life of a family and allows us to reflect and understand how suffering, guilt, and fear, but also love, can mark the day to day of those who live an experience such as this. The mastery of narrative and a well-crafted visual style make this film a work of great interest on the subject of mental health and human rights."

FAQ

The Mental Health Rights Film Festival, fostered by the Lisbon Institute of Global Mental Health, is a short film festival and international competition that focuses on showcasing cinematographic works that deal with mental health issues in order to raise awareness of the rights of people with mental disorders and to fight the stigma associated with mental disorders.

The MHRFF will take place at Forum Lisboa, in Lisbon.
Forum Lisboa, was for decades one of the most prestigious cinemas in the city of Lisbon. Bought and recovered by the Lisbon City Council in 1997, it has been converted into a privileged space for the development of activities in a cultural, social and educational circuit that is available for all citizens of Lisbon.

The event starts on February 25, 2022.
