Mental Health Short Film Contest - Art With Impact

Film is a powerful tool for creating connections and getting conversations started around the complex topic of mental illness. uOttawa is hosting a mental health short film contest this fall and winter in partnership with Art With Impact.

Art With Impact is an organisation that promotes mental wellness by creating space for young people to learn and connect through art and media.

Submit your short film, 5 min. or less, on the topic of mental health for a chance to win $1,000!

Upcoming submission deadlines:
