Events at Thessaloniki International Film Festival: The Stress Factor: How to Stay Well and Mentally Balanced in an Ever-demanding Industry

The audiovisual industry focuses on performance and creativity. Yet, as recent studies are showing, particularly in an after-pandemic reality, its high demands have started to take a toll on our well-being and capacity: exhaustion, burnout, high stress levels and a tendency to leave the industry, affect all of us in one way or another, even if the discussion about mental health is still somehow perceived as taboo. The experience of the panelists, their acknowledgement of the issue, as well as their own individual solutions, will offer the audience a shared space that aims to destigmatize the subject of mental health.
