ISN Community Film Award

The ISN will pioneer a special film event at the ISN World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) to be held 12-17 April, 2019 in Melbourne Australia. The concept is to showcase films that reflect patient experiences or provide education for patients on renal topics, such as commencing dialysis.

Similar to submitting an abstract, ISN, ANZSN and APSN members are invited to submit a short film that either educates about chronic kidney disease, dialysis or transplantation or reflects patient experience. Non-member submissions should be submitted via a member.

At the congress, during a special session, WCN 2019 participants will vote for the best film out of 6 films preselected by a jury. At the end of the session, the winners of the best film, as selected by the jury and the audience, will be announced and awards will be distributed.
