Art With Impact’s monthly competition discovers the best new short films on topics relating to mental health. Each month a winner is selected, awarded $1,000 and given the opportunity to have their film featured in our educational workshops around North America. Entries may be submitted by anyone, anywhere, as long as they address the topic of mental health and are five minutes or less.

Our OLIVE Film Collection contains cutting edge short films about mental health. Through our monthly competition and targeted sourcing we are constantly growing our collection, representing diverse perspectives and exploring different areas in mental health.

I feel that as mental health is very rarely represented clearly, and as it’s such a wide subject matter, my piece only scratches the surface. I believe that it is not a subject tackled enough and is still rarely talked about openly."
-Dale John Allen, Winner, A Film About Love

Our winning films are selected by a rotating jury of filmmakers, mental health professionals and students.
