Film Festival

24 - 27 March 2025

What is the Orthopedic Film Festival?

The Orthopedic Film Festival is a 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 2025 is a year-round event, leading up to the cinematic production on March 24 – 27, 2025, 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.
