Save the script – A short film competition to raise awareness about antibiotic resistance

In 2015, the world’s largest short film festival Tropfest arranged a short film competition on antibiotic resistance together with NPS MedicineWise. The challenge was to create a short film or community service announcement of maximum 45 seconds to increase public awareness about the global health threat antibiotic resistance poses. The organizers provided information and facts about antibiotic resistance, encouraging participating filmmakers to learn key points about the issue and be creative in spreading the word further. Winners were selected from around the world and awarded cash prices. See the Top 15 finalists here.
