New at the Congress – The 2020 World Cancer Congress will include a Cinema

Don't miss this opportunity to share your successful films with experts from all over the world !
Submit your film from 12 June to 31 October.


Film is an art form that aims to convey stories, stir emotions, inspire and encourage actions. The new Cinema is a great opportunity for all organisations and independent film makers to spread their message through the projection of a film, documentary, advert or a campaign video that has had a marked impact.

From 12 June to 31 October 2019, we are calling on submissions that will shape the programme of the  "Cinema", by submitting either one of the following formats:

  • Films or animations, with an attempt to change people's perception on a given topic in cancer control, or with the aim to inform and bring to light a specific aspect of cancer control. Films often aim at inspiring and sharing an experience with the audience. For example, it could show the impact of living with cancer, on patients and their relatives, or touching upon the human resilience against cancer, etc. 

  • Campaign video clips, that help raise awareness and pave the way to action. For instance, clips created to educate the public with successful prevention messages, fundraising purposes, early detection, etc.

Communicating effectively and purposefully is a key component of the global fight against cancer. Don't miss this opportunity to share your successful films with experts from all over the world, and inspire others to do the same in their country, so they can have an impact too.
