Rare Disease UK is hosting the UK’s first ever film festival that is dedicated to raising awareness of rare diseases. We are inviting charities, companies, independent film-makers, students and individuals to submit their films. Our judging panel will choose the most innovative, inspiring and powerful films that raise awareness of a rare disease or rare diseases to receive awards across eight categories.
The winning movies will be screened at an Awards Ceremony in Regent Street Cinema in front of an audience of major rare disease supporters, including charities, patients and patient advocates, researchers, healthcare professionals, film-making professionals, industry representatives, digital and PR agencies. The event is an opportunity to shed light on the realities of living with a rare condition ahead of the upcoming Rare Disease Day on 29 February 2020.
