ISN Community Film Event: Raise Awareness by Sharing Your Kidney Care Story

Storytelling is a powerful way to inform, educate, and activate change. Over the last few years, more than 100 stories from over 50 countries have been shared through the ISN Community Film Event.

Running in collaboration with the WKD Campaign, the 5th edition of the ISN Community Film Event is an opportunity to raise awareness and improve understanding of the reality of living with kidney disease.

Submit your story by February 2, 2023 and make a difference in the lives of kidney patients and those who care for them.

All submitted films will be added to the ISN Community Film Event Map, and 6 films pre-selected by a jury will be featured at the ISN Community Film Event Session held on April 1, 2023 during WCN’23, in Bangkok, Thailand.
During this interactive session, the winners of the “2023 ISN Community Best Film” and “WKD 2023 Best Film” will be announced and awarded.

Please check out the Eligibility Criteria and Submission Guidelines and the Selection and Awards before submitting your film.
