The central theme of the short films must be related to Nursing or Physiotherapy, in any of their fields of work or training stages, and must highlight the relevance of professions and care. We want it to be you, with your camera or with the of your smartphone, whoever tells us, in a short fiction or documentary, of a maximum duration of five minutes, what you see in the profession, what or who is important to you, how we relate to each other and how we work, teach, learn or lead … In short, we want to get to know nursing and physiotherapy from your perspective because the different perspectives teach us new aspects and points of view that may surprise us. Go ahead and show us yours! You don’t have to be a professional filmmaker, we have a category for you. And if you already have experience, we are also looking forward to seeing your new piece.
