PrEP 17 – The coming of age of PrEP

About the film

In 2015, film maker Nicholas Feustel made a documentary film about the England PROUD PrEP trial. The documentary was shown at community events across the UK, and formed the focus for PrEPster's Pushing for PrEP community education events. 

In January 2017, Nicholas returned to London to pick up what has happened to PrEP since the completion of the last film. PrEP17 explores the stories of over a dozen PrEP activists; current and former PrEP users; clinicians; and policy-makers. The 36 minute documentary film, commissioned by PrEPster, shines a light on how PrEP has become available to thousands of people, despite the failures of the health system.



PrEP17 events 

Throughout 2017 PrEPster hosted a series of PrEP17 film showings, followed by panel discussions, across the UK. Friends and allies across the world hosted their own film events. Details of new events in 2018 will be posted below, as they are confirmed.
