"Raising awareness of patients and their stories has powerful and transformative potential," said Pulatus. "I wanted to participate in this opportunity to remind us of our shared humanity, strengthen and build the connections between people, and weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that life and health matter."

Judges included Ryan Howard from Practice Fusion, Disposable Film Festival co-founders Carlton Evans and Eric Slatkin, Disposable Film Festival associate director, Katie Gillum and Sundance-selected, award-winning editor and filmmaker Dalan McNabola.
