Help us screen Angst in underserved communities.

Our Goal: 10,000 community screenings reaching 5 million kids & families.

Anxiety isn't cool, but talking about it is.
And that's why we need your help to spread this message.

Thank you to all who support the IndieFlix Foundation. We are already making lives better.

Since our launch September 25th 2017 we have had 72 screenings in 5 countries and 18,000 students, parents educators and professionals have screened Angst and participated in long conversations about mental health. The response has been incredible.

The most common responses:

I wish this film had existed when I was growing up it would’ve saved me and my family a lot of heartache.
— Father of 3 kids - NYC
So glad my dad got to see this movie now he knows I’m not making it up.
— 9 year old student - Chicago, IL
I’m so grateful that all my friends can see this movie and know what I deal with on a regular basis.
— 14 year old student - York Town, IL
I never knew that what I was experiencing was severe anxiety I’m so grateful to know that there is treatment
— 18 year old college student - Seattle, WA

The greatest demand is access to licensed professionals, and working Angst and social emotional learning into the school curriculum.

Together we are normalizing the conversation around mental health and as Michael Phelps in the film says so eloquently, "it's okay to not be okay".  We will continue to source and vet tools and resources to share with everyone for free as part of the Angst program.

Angst is an IndieFlix Original documentary designed to raise awareness around anxiety with an emphasis on youth and families. Our goal specifically is to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help. Angst will be screened in schools, communities and theaters around the world. The film and corresponding materials provide tools, resources and above all, hope.

I welcomed the opportunity to be a part of ‘Angst’ to further the dialogue around mental health and to help people understand the impact anxiety has on our mental state and encourage people, especially kids, to ask for help.

Anxiety is a debilitating disease with our students and I wanted to share your vision and hope with them. Our school is grades 7-12. My goal is to have the entire school watch it and have a conversation - we have approximately 700 students.

Spread the wordBelieve change is possible. These screenings bring kids, parents, and educators together to talk about this universal issue, share personal stories, and provide resources and tools.  There is power in solidarity. The more you share, the more we connect. Share this film in your community because watching it alone on your couch does not create the same effect as watching it with others.

Angst is inspirational; the courageous effort made by teens in the film to face their fears and become competent in coping is heart-warming and breath-taking. It is just the kind of public health promotion we need for educating caring people so that we can reverse the harms of stigma and support children in distress.
— Dr. Laura Kastner
