Under The Skin

The first MEDFEST-EG edition came to the light in January and April of 2017,
Tackling mental health issues which have always been a part of the collective consciousness of communities. Whether spoken about loudly or shunned from public discussions, mental health has been and would always be a concern for us all and despite the occurrence of global changes towards dealing with mental health issues, stigmas are still there and correctly dealing with them requires communication; that would always be our goal.

OUR PANELISTIS

The list of believers in the power of art to change and the necessity of bringing medicine and film together, who joined us in the discussion panels and
workshops, is growing.
We are taking the educational and artistic experience of MedFest-EG far beyond film screenings where we try putting together ideas and insights from different groups of healthcare professionals, filmmakers and children and their families in workshops and camps.
