NYAPRS Note: Join Community Access and NYAPRS NYC for the tenth annual mental health film festival in Brooklyn this May. Buy your tickets early to participate in this groundbreaking event, and join together with peers and community members to share in the journey of recovery.

 

 

The 10th Annual Community Access/NYAPRS NYC Mental Health Film Festival brings to downtown Brooklyn a vivid selection of thought-provoking films that positively portray the mental health community.

 

The two-day event also includes Q&A sessions with filmmakers, and lively audience discussions. Come for the audience discussions and to hobnob with filmmakers as much as for the films.

 

This year’s special theme is Hospitals and their Alternatives.

 Featured films include: Technically Crazy, A Sister's Call, Kings Park

 and comedic shorts.
