Booking The Discover ME Experience

Discover ME

The Discover ME Experience is a unique, two-part awareness and educational introduction to M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) delivered by: 

  1. Viewing a 6 minute, 3D virtual reality video or a self-directed 2D short film,

    and
  2. Reading the accompanying information pack by means of self-directed learning.  

The Discover ME film was originally designed to be viewed using virtual reality headsets. In cases of having an audience over 20 people, the film can be provided in a 2D format via a YouTube link.  Click HERE for additional background of the film.

The film shares insights into the lives of 6 people living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – abbreviated as ME/CFS). It places the viewer into real life scenarios that are normally never seen, heard or experienced. This narrows the gap between an individual’s preconceived beliefs and real personal experience.  

NI Screen funded Discover ME which is a partnership production between Hope 4 ME & Fibro Northern Ireland, Silverink, and Neon. To date, it has won 4 international short film awards.  Click HERE for a trailer of the film.
