Adelaide University Psychiatry Society is excited to present Medfest 2019. Medfest is an annual mental health film festival dedicated to raising awareness and curating discussion about important mental health issues.

Each year, a coordinating team of psychiatry trainees in London source 3-5 films from around the world concerning a central theme. This year's theme is Inside Outside. Each of the films we plan to showcase will explore the the discrepancy found between our authentic inner worlds and our skin-thick outer projections, as well as, the stigma attached with mental illnesses.

Between film screenings, a group of expert South Australian panellists will discuss their understanding about the ideas presented. This will feature Dr Jaklin Eliott (psychology), Dr Leslie Koopowitz (psychiatry) and Dr Andrea McKivett (social determinants and Aboriginal studies).
