Do you want to organise Global Health Film Days 2023?

Film Festival

Would you like to learn how to curate films and debates about the most urgent global health challenges of our time? We are looking for student and alumni organisers for UCPH's new film festival, Global Health Film Days, which will take place in Spring 2023.

Global Health Film Days 2022
Film screening and debate at World Water Day 2022

For two years in a row, Global health Film Days has brought thought-provoking films and debates about our time’s most urgent global health challenges to the big screen. And we want to continue this journey in 2023.

Global problems require global solutions, and that is the starting point for Global Health Film Days. We want to show films and host debates and events that make people reflect about the interconnectedness of health and wellbeing on our planet. We want people to be inspired and to become changemakers for a more sustainable – and healthy – future.

Global Health is more than infectious diseases and how we deal with them. Climate change, food production, pollution, health policy, mental well-being, reproductive and sexual health and rights, new forms of medical treatment and the right to health care and medicine are just some of the topics that global health deals with. And these are all some of topics you can meet on the big screen at Global Health Film Days.

The events are made by students and some also moderate the debates with the invited speakers.

Become a student organiser

Would you like to curate a debate, talk or panel about a global health topic or challenge that you are passionate about? Would you like to organise a student photo competition? Make our new festival trailer? Develop our visual identity? Work on a funding application? Be our new social media manager, developing a strategy for e.g. Instagram or Facebook?

Then get in touch with us now and become a part of a dedicated team of student organisers. Maybe you only have a little time to dedicate to the festival, maybe you have a lot? No matter what, we can find a task that suits you.

Experiences from students in 2021 and 2022:

We would also like to hear from you if you have ideas for topics, films, venues, collaboration partners etc.

First volunteer meeting

We will meet Friday 16 September at 14.30-15.30 at the School of Global Health, Building 9, Room 9.2.22, CSS Campus. Entrance from Bartholinsgade 4. All interested are welcome.

About Global Health Film Days

The festival takes place in April 2023. The main festival location is the Cinematheque in The Danish Film Institute but maybe we would also like to arrange on-location screenings around town.

Global Health Film Days is organised by the University of Copenhagen's School of Global Health and a dedicated team of student volunteers.
