Call for Submissions: The Cranbrook Video Festival – Wellbeing

The Cranbrook Video Festival is now open for submissions.

This year the Festival is going to be held at the Crane Surgery in Cranbrook, and the theme of the festival is ‘Wellbeing’. Videos on other subjects will be accepted for consideration, but videos about wellbeing are particularly welcome.

At the surgery we’re currently putting together a series of instructional videos about wellbeing, to be displayed in our Waiting Room. Research has shown that a sense of wellbeing is just as powerfully associated with long life and good health as all the usual physiological stuff: weight control, blood pressure control, low cholesterol, plenty of exercise, plenty of roughage, etc. Yet most people are very much in the dark about what practical things they can do to promote their own mental and spiritual good health. But the information’s out there: creative activity, learning new things, staying active, socialising, giving to others and mindfulness are all good for your wellbeing.

For the Festival, we’d particularly like to put together some videos on the theme of wellbeing – activities that promote wellbeing, circumstances that prevent wellbeing, philosophy of wellbeing, things that make you happy, representations of happiness, etc.  Videos should ideally be under 10 minutes in length, but longer work will be considered.

The festival will be held at the Crane Surgery in Cranbrook, Kent on Friday 19/2/16. The deadline for submissions is 30th December. If interested, please contact julian.lesaux@gmail.com with “Video festival submission” in the subject-line.
