Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival >> 2013
Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, this is a film festival with a difference, focused on people who face different challenges in day to day life and exploring the diversity of perspectives that creates. It's an opportunity to reflect on the mental health narratives in popular films and to see independent films telling stories that don't usually find their way onto the big screen.
The festival runs from 1 to 26 October and includes events and screenings in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and more.
