Short Cut: The Short Film Making Competition

Theme: I’m not ‘crazy’, I’m just a little unwell

Theme Description
The term ‘mental illness’ tends to evoke images of persons living in deep despair, struggling with inner demons and having little chance of experiencing any kind of well-being. While certain people may acquire mental illnesses that can be quite disabling, most people recover well and are able to live fulfilling lives as active member of their communities. Challenging the desolate images described above requires an unearthing of the stories and accounts of people who have successfully coped with mental illness.

The idea behind this event is to create a narrative that brings forth the humanity of people who live with mental illnesses while debunking the myths associated with being mentally ill.
