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

Storytelling is a powerful way to inform, educate, and activate change. Help raise awareness and improve understanding of the reality of living with kidney disease by sharing your story at the ISN Community Film Event.
The ISN Community Film Event is a unique initiative to raise awareness and improve understanding of the reality of living with kidney disease.

Former winners include “Dialysis journey of a Sarawakian” (2019), “Hope is a walking dream” (2020), “Life Beyond the Transplant” (2021) “The Mountain in His Blood” (2021), For Some the Wait Never Ends (2022) and Ilan Lavi Donates A Kidney – And Gets a Happiness Transplant (2022)
