It is the focus of the film festival to give survivors a voice and a venue to share their life experiences and provide hope to others. Everyone is invited to participate with their work. Animation, narrative and non-narratives, audiovisual poetry films, and experimental works are accepted.
The Overcome Film Festival especially encourages the entries of anyone who wants to share their experiences in overcoming challenges, illnesses, disabilities or any other factor that has contributed to their growth as a person and motivated them to celebrate their existence.
The Overcome Film Festival is an international event and everyone all over the world is encouraged and welcome to participate.
