Celebrating 20 Years of Frames of Mind

Although it’s come and gone, September 2021 marked the beginning of the twentieth year of the Frames of Mind Mental Health Film Series as a monthly event at The Cinematheque. We’re understandably proud of this achievement, and would like to thank our presenting partners, The Cinematheque and the Institute of Mental Health at the UBC Department of Psychiatry, as well as our many speakers and co-sponsors over the years, too many to count here. A big thank you as well to you, our audience, for your continued commitment to attending our events. We wouldn’t be here without you!
