Huntington's Disease Association Participates in the 2024 Smiley Charity Film Awards.
The Huntington's Disease Association is excited to announce its entry into the esteemed 2024 Smiley Charity Film Awards. This annual event brings together over 400 charities, each representing various causes, to showcase impactful films that promote their missions. Established seven years ago, the Charity Film Awards have become the world's largest platform for charitable organizations, benefiting more than 2,500 causes by generating exposure, donations, and volunteer engagement.
Our campaign film was unveiled during Huntington's Disease Awareness Month in May 2023, each year we work with the community to raise awareness by showing the lived experience of Huntington's disease.
This year, to show the impact that cognitive impairment has on people affected by Huntington's disease and members of the family we created this short film. In our film we speak to someone with Juvenile Huntington's disease and someone who grew up in a Huntington's household. We also interviewed healthcare professionals who specialise in Huntington's disease which really shows the impact that cognitive impairment has on people and how early intervention and an understanding of the disease is paramount.
These narratives aim to raise awareness about the challenges faced by those living with Huntington's disease and the importance of supporting research, care, and advocacy efforts.
