A free film festival begins from early October in Preston exploring the issue of mental health.Advertisement
The One in Four Film Festival enters its ninth year and screenings take place across the University of Central Lancashire campus.
Films on show include Song for Marion, an upbeat film focusing on music as therapy, Cathy Come Home, a woman’s struggle with poverty and See Saw, a film about being a young carer.
Janette Grey, director of academic development in the College of Health and Wellbeing, said: “We believe there needs to be more awareness about mental health as a social disability and how people can find themselves excluded from mainstream society.
All the films will be screened in the Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema, in UCLan’s Foster Building from Monday 5 October to Saturday 10 October.
There are a mixture of matinee and evening performances, the matinee starts at 1pm while evening shows begin at 7pm. Full details on film timings and what’s showing on which day can be found on the UCLan website.
Film showings are free but organisers are asking for donations to be made to the Preston Refugee and Asylum Project.
