Oxford will host the UK’s first Public Health Film Festival from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th June at the Phoenix Cinema on Walton Street and the Radcliffe Humanities Building, which will include a variety of feature films, short films, workshops, panel discussions and events.

The theme of the festival is ‘Past, Present and Future,’ and the festival will showcase films that demonstrate how the understanding of population health has shaped the past, our present; and how it will undoubtedly shape the future.
