Call for Entries: Public Asked to Submit Videos to 2010 Neuro Film Festival

Win up to $1,500 and Attend 2010 Neuro Film Festival in Toronto
People who have compelling stories to share regarding how they or a loved one has been affected by a brain disorder are invited to submit a short video to the 2010 Neuro Film Festival, an event by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation to help raise awareness about brain disorders and the need to support research into preventions, treatments, and cures.

“We need the public, especially patients and caregivers, to submit short videos to the Neuro Film Festival to help us show why more research is needed into brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, migraine, autism, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, ALS and stroke,” said Christine E. Phelps, Deputy Executive Director of the American Academy of Neurology Foundation. “Tell us your story or the story of a loved one affected by neurologic disorders and you could win up to $1,500 and a chance to have your video shown at the Neuro Film Festival in Toronto in conjunction with the Academy’s 62nd Annual Meeting.”

Video submissions to the Neuro Film Festival should be made at by February 16, 2010. Videos should be three to seven minutes in length. Each short film should include the phrase, “Let’s put our brains together to support brain research.”

A video showing how to submit to the Neuro Film Festival is available at, on the Neuro Film Festival’s channel on YouTube, and via Facebook®.

Submissions Deadline: February 16, 2010

The Neuro Film Festival is sponsored by PSAV® Presentation Services.

The American Academy of Neurology Foundation (AAN Foundation) raises money to support vital research into the prevention, treatment and cure of brain disorders. The AAN Foundation is committed to improving patient care, quality of life and public understanding of the brain and other neurologic disorders.

The American Academy of Neurology, an association of more than 21,000 neurologists and neuroscience professionals, is dedicated to promoting the highest quality patient-centered neurologic care through education and research. A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
