Short Film About Teen Depression Wins Art With Impact's February 2017 Short Film Competition on Mental Health

Short film 'Mia's Story' is the 33rd short film to enter Art With Impact's mental health film collection

Art With Impact (AWI) is excited to congratulate Vicki Kisner for the film 'Mia’s Story’ which is the March 2017 addition to AWI's OLIVE Film Collection. The film follows Mia, a 16 year old who has been feeling low but is unsure as to why. After being diagnosed with anxiety and depression she begins to receive specialized help and learns how to cope with her feelings which empowers her and allows her to feel mentally well.

Filmmaker Vicki Kisner is a writer and director of short films and campaign films, and is currently writing her first feature length script. She has been commissioned to make a number of social awareness and campaign films for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in London, with whom Vicki collaborated to create 'Mia's Story'.

Art With Impact’s monthly film competition awards one winning filmmaker a $1,000 cash prize for a film — up to five minutes in length and of any genre — that uses mental health as the point of interest. Film topics may either be interpretive of mental health, or address it directly. Winning films are added to AWI’s diverse OLIVE Film Collection, which is used in educational outreach programs.
