Passion is the theme of this year's Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, and it has another packed line-up of fascinating films for audiences to enjoy, including two premieres from Norwegian directors. It's also notable for having half its features directed by women, something that's rare at any festival. It will be held in venues across Scotland, with major film selections screening in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth, supported by an extensive programme of arts events.
