Film Festival

The Film Festival offers a versatile way to learn and spark conversations about glaucoma in creative ways. It features films directly or indirectly related to glaucoma, that explores and highlight the disease locally, nationally, and globally. Our goal is to screen films that demonstrate, educate, inspire, and encourage a change, to eliminate blindness and visual disability due to glaucoma around the world.
