Brain Film Fest 2021 took place March 18-20th. The last 12 months have been a shock to the system, and perhaps especially so when contemplating our mental health. Its repercussions are becoming evident both on an individual, as well as collective, level. As the pandemic’s symptoms fade out, we’ll have to learn to cope with the mental consequences of this seismic change. In many ways it’s a Brain Crash, an accident whose magnitude we’re barely beginning to understand. BFF was hoping to bring a multifaceted perspective on the current situation, viewing it not only as a trauma, but as a rupture that leaves space for improvement and creation. The festival’s 4th edition focused on the fragility of our psychological balance, through films, talks and workshops, in addition to other films and content about the marvelous universe of the human brain.
