Applications call for the Health for All Film Festival 2021. Basically, the WHO Health for All Film Festival invites independent film-makers, production companies, public institutions, NGOs, communities, students, and film schools from around the world to submit their original short films on health. The festival aims to recruit a new generation of film and video innovators to champion and promote global health issues.


For submitting a short film, the copyright owner of the film must choose one category of competition among the three described below, which relate to WHO’s global health targets set out in the Thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW13):

  • Universal health coverage (UHC) – films about mental health; non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and other UHC stories linked to communicable diseases not part of emergencies;
  • Health emergencies – films about health emergencies, for instance COVID-19, Ebola, disaster relief and health in war-zones;
  • Better health and well-being – films about environmental and social determinants of health, such as nutrition, sanitation, pollution, gender, and/or about health promotion or health education.


In addition, juries can nominate special prizes (listed below) for short-listed videos not receiving a GRAND PRIX. From this pool, the Director-General can choose up to three special prizes. The winners of GRAND PRIX are not eligible for special prizes. In addition, there will be only one special prize per candidate.

Special Prizes

The Health for All Film Festival has the following special prizes

  • Student-produced film: videos of 3 to 8 minutes long produced by students who are legal adults in their country and enrolled in formal education, including audio-visual and film-making schools.
  • Health educational film aimed at youth: videos of 3 to 8 minutes long produced with a specific educational goal.
  • Video designed specifically for social media: videos of 1 to 5 minutes.


For each of these three grand Prix categories, candidates can submit short documentaries or fiction films of 3 to 8 minutes in length; short videos specifically crafted for social media; or animation films of 1 to 5 minutes in length for all the described categories.
