Film has the unique ability to make us feel. To make us laugh, cry and think. Through the creation of compelling human-interest stories, filmmakers have the potential to influence health and catalyze change. That's why in May 2020 WHO will host the first-ever Health for All Film Festival in Geneva.
Whether you are an amateur filmmaker seeking to tell the story of change-makers in your community through the lens of your smartphone or you're working with a production company to promote dialogue around global health challenges and solutions, WHO wants to see your story.
The Health for All Film Festival aims to put storytelling power in the hands of people and seeks to showcase the role of individuals and communities as champions for health and well-being.
Filmmakers are invited to submit a short video for one of the following categories. The first two categories are open to any health issue as defined in the application rules, the third category is for videos that have a special focus on nurses or midwives for the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, which will be celebrated in 2020.
CED wants to participate in this initiative and is inviting you to submit a short video (10-15 seconds long) mentioning how Clinical Engineers (CE's) are part of the champions of health and well-being. It can be as simple as shooting a video with your selfie camera saying something like this:
"Clinical Engineers help you and your family receive reliable diagnosis and treatment by assuring medical equipment works as accurately as possible." Make sure you can come up with a sentence or two like this and get it on camera. Another good idea would be to ask a patient to give a testimony on how CE's have helped him or here.
