CREATING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH THROUGH INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING

justthehead.png

TiltShift is an international two-day film series on the campus of Drexel University in Philadelphia, focused on the expression of mental health themes through all mediums and genres of filmmaking. It is an official capstone project at Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, organized by event director/host Matt Profaci, a senior in the undergraduate EAM (Entertainment & Arts Management) program and the current operations manager for the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival (PUFF).

A shorts block will screen each evening followed by a centerpiece feature film. In total, TiltShift will showcase 14 recent and bold visions of mental health and close with a very special retrospective screening of The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2005). Select filmmakers will participate in live Q&As post-screenings.

We received submissions to TiltShift from every continent on the planet (except Antarctica) and are thrilled to be presenting a truly international film festival right here in West Philadelphia. Our screening team consisted of four students at Drexel University involved in both the EAM and film/television programs with special interests and backgrounds in different fields of mental health.

 Tickets will be available at the door both nights and are pay-what-you-want. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

 

All collected income from submissions and ticket sales (minus what we are obliged to pay in service fees) will be donated directly to the Hi, How Are You Project of Austin, TX to further their educational efforts in bringing mental health awareness and conversations to various communities through the power of art and media. Named in honor of the late singer-songwriter and visual artist Daniel Johnston, the Hi, How Are You Project is committed to removing the stigma around mental health, one conversation at a time.
