The Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival draws to a close on the 30 of this month, and with over 300 hundred events staged across the country (including theatre, music, visual art and film), it has to be applauded as a massive success.

What seemed like a quirky idea 10 years ago has blossomed into a gigantic feast of cultural engagement around a subject that has touched most people’s lives, and SMHAFF’s mission to challenge pre-conceived ideas about mental health has surely gained ground.

Thursday sees an exciting premiere as a long term recovery group at Dykebar Hospital unveil their poignant movie Dykebar and Me. A touching, self-created film which features personal challenges, triumphs and hopes for the future. The programme also boasts a screening of The Third Dad, an award-winning documentary directed by Theresa Moerman Ib. Ten years after breaking ties with her heavy drinking father, the filmmaker sets out to find his grave and maybe a bit of redemption.

Part of Recovery Fest in Renfrewshire.
Thursday, October 27 from 2pm – 3.30pm.
Odeon Braehead | King’s Inch Rd | Renfrew PA4 8XQ
