The Film Festival aims to put storytelling power in the hands of glaucoma experts and seeks to showcase the role of individuals and communities as champions for glaucoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

The festival offers a versatile way to learn and spark the conversation about glaucoma in creative ways. It features films directly or indirectly related to glaucoma, that explore and highlight the disease locally, nationally and globally. Our goal is to screen films that demonstrate, educate, inspire and encourage a change, to eliminate blindness and visual disability due to glaucoma around the world.

Get inspired by the WGC-2019 Film Festival winner, submitted by Talvir Sidhu, India, titled “Bleb Rescue Operations”: ow.ly/o7l650B2ir6
