Exploring the Intersection between Science and Image at the Thrilling #Imagésanté Festival Journey

As we have already announced, the Imagésanté festival, which aims to promote health through images, through a Documentary Film Festival anchored in the city of Liège, of around ten TV shows on health-related topics and a Campus featuring numerous health education and promotion activities, namely student-only workshops and live coverage of surgical operations, will be launched on March 27 next.

All the screenings of the films in competition are grouped together in the city centre, in the heart of the city of Liège, at the Sauvenière and Churchill des Grignoux cinemas. Imagésanté 2023 will present a program of 22 documentaries in competition from all over the world, selected “for their quality, their commitment and their approach which offers a cross-section of cinema, science and health”, point out the organizers.

The Festival also offers programs on various health themes, broadcast live on one of the Festival’s two YouTube channels and then podcasted to be available on the website. www.imagesante.be. These programs will address topics such as diet, vaccination, the long Covid, physical activity, medicine in the digital age, oncology, the mental health of the population or endocrine disruptors. The programs will be filmed on the set of the Cité Miroir, in the presence of the public.

Education and health promotion activities will take place at the Amphis de Médecine on the CHU de Liège site, with live broadcasts of surgical operations on Monday 27, Tuesday 28, Thursday 30 and Friday 31 March.
