Film Festival

24 - 27 March 2024

What is the Orthopedic Film Festival?

The Orthopedic Film Festival is the one-of-a-kind opportunity to look behind the curtain into the operating theatre and learn new techniques, strategies and technologies directly from the surgeons themselves. Unveil your best tip, trick or surgical technique on the big screen to an audience of global peers.

The OFF 2024 is a year-round event, leading up to the cinematic production on March 24 – 27, 2024, where your short, surgical videos will be evaluated by a jury of peers. The winner of each category will win the attention of an international audience, join the ranks of an elite group of winners, and go home with a cool cash prize.
