Positive Life Festival: short films competition

Share this opportunity
The first edition of the Positive Life Festival will take place on 1 and 2 December 2023 at the CHUV in Lausanne


The event will offer artistic performances, readings, discussions and meetings. For this occasion, a competition of short films and a performance dealing with HIV today is launched. This call for projects is open to anyone interested in thematizing an aspect of life with HIV, whether in the form of a documentary, fiction, animation, etc. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2023. The Positive Life Festival jury will select the top five films and one performance to receive CHF 10,000 each.


For Andreas Lehner, Director of the Swiss Aids Federation, “it is unprecedented to see an institution like the CHUV supporting an initiative like the Positive Life Festival. The year-long cultural and scientific activities, and the creation of new representations of HIV today through a call for films and performances, add a creative and important tool for both HIV prevention and the destigmatization of people living with HIV.
