This festival is an opportunity to build a bridge between creative artists and a reality often removed from public perception: “Rare diseases” are often viewed as only affecting a few, but in reality, there are approx. 350 million rare disease patients around the world. There is a large group of people who all too often fall through the cracks, because their disease pattern is often not recognized in time or because therapies simply do not exist yet.
The aim of all films should be to shine a spotlight on rare diseases – raising awareness for patients and all those affected. Diseases are more than just suffering. Diseases also bring moments of laughter and companionship, redirect what one considers important, and force individuals to define new personal priorities. All of these components are part of an outstanding story waiting to be told.
