The sixth Biomedical Ethics Film Festival is taking place at the Edinburgh Filmhouse between 26th and 28th November 2010. Organised by the Scottish Council on Human Bioethics, this year’s selection of films and documentaries are focussed on the depiction of psychiatric issues and the associated ethics. The line-up includes: Girl, Interrupted; The Madness of King George; and opens with The Eighth Day. Documentaries include: Mental – a history of the madhouse; Sectioned; and Stephen Fry – the secret life of a manic depressive. Showings are followed by an audience discussion led by a panel of invited participants. A full description of the programme can be seen via this link and tickets can be purchased via the Filmhouse website. Having been involved with the Festival for the first time last year, I’m looking forward to another excellent and thought provoking weekend.
