What could the world look like if it was run by people and communities who have always been marginalised? What if we could reimagine our social structures and systems to make room for healing?

This programme envisions new worlds through the work of five diverse filmmakers from across the world, conjuring dreams of a sensitive and fluid society where social, political, and even physical rules no longer apply.

About Healing

Healing is a series of screenings curated by Theo Panagopoulos for the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, as part of Film Hub Scotland’s New Promoters Scheme.

Almost two years since the world turned upside down, we have a unique opportunity to reflect on how we can make space for healing in uncertain times. These events open up a series of conversations around healing, exploring it as an individual and collective process, as well as a discourse that allows us to reimagine the world we live in.

These screenings aim to address mental health in a calm, reflective and explorative manner, creating accessible and trigger-sensitive experiences for audiences with lived experience of mental ill health.

Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and Lottery funding from the BFI.
