    Hi there, I attended the launch evening of the Public Health Film Festival this year and thought it was a very interesting and stimulating evening. In May 2015 there is an international conference on Public Health and Palliative Care in Bristol http://www.phpci.info/#!about1/c1f7j I am part of a group looking at programming cultural events and activities related to the conference. The conference organisers are in discussion with the Watershed Media Centre about programming films related to the conference theme and I thought they might find it helpful to talk to you and get suggestions? If so can you give me a name and email address of the person they could contact?
    Kind regards
    Alex

    Hi there,

    Quick question in regards to a dissertation I’m currently writing. Do you think that public health films are classified under the banner of ‘public information films’

    My dissertation is investigating public information films however the definition of it seems to be quite limited. Can you help at all?

    Regards
    Max

      Dear Max, thanks for your comment and interest in the public health film society. Some films that cover public health subjects could be classed as films of fact or non-fiction films. Tim Boon has got an excellent book on the development of this genre of films over the last 100 years and this may be good background reading for your thesis

      Some of the earlier public health films are available to view on the Wellcome Trust website

      However many fictional films also touch on or are inspired by public health issues.

      Hope this helps. I would be very interested in chatting with you further about your dissertation and how we may be able to help

      Kind regards,

    Dear reader,

    just found your website. Will you be organizing a public health festival again?

    We made this film about the culture and structure of Dutch health care, for international students and staff of Wageningen University and Research Centre. It became part of the introduction programme for starting students.

    We also wrote a paper about the processes before, during and after the film making, framing the film as a social innovation.

    Hi there

    Teachers Media has produced a couple of Ebola public health animations to help reduce risky behaviour now being broadcast via satellite across West Africa . You can see them here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQavn7djuEbndcwPhAUBY00s6Fnwub1d2

    It would be great to get this work some more recognition. Are they something that fit the mould the society is interested in?

    Kind regards

    David Libbert
