Bristol Science Film Festival 2021 health prize winners

3 August 2021

We are pleased to announce winners of the Bristol Science Film Festival Elizabeth Blackwell Institute health film prize 2021.

Bristol Science Film Festival runs an annual science film competition to support film-makers trying to tell the most interesting facts (or science fictions), no matter their resources.
This year, to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female doctor, there was an additional health film category prize.

Here we share the winners' films:

Winner — Hand

Brett Harvey

A reflective essay on living with young onset Parkinson’s disease.


Runner up — Gene Therapy Explained: Changing Our Bodies’ Recipe to Treat Disease

Linda von Neree, Katie Snell

The animation shows Alexis and Freddie, two members of the Young Persons’ Advisory Group (YPAG) at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, asking questions to understand what gene therapy is about. All members of the group were involved in shaping the animation and they regularly work with doctors, nurses and scientists helping to improve health care research for children.
