Welcome to the Public Health Film Society
We are a UK-based group who love film and have an interest in public health. We aim to bring people together to share our common interests in public health films and promote awareness of public health through film as widely as possible.
The universal nature of film lends itself as a powerful medium to explore, discuss and understand public health issues and several other media have already been effective in raising public health awareness. The potential reach of film is truly global, although it has not yet been used extensively within the field of public health.
The Public Health Film Society, open to anyone from anywhere, aims to:
1. Enjoy films that incorporate a public health message
2. Identify and discuss public health issues portrayed through film
3. Use film as a method to promote health and public health issues, especially in hard to reach communities
4. Generate a database of films relating to public health Our activities are inclusive, fun and flexible.
