The Recovery Street Film Festival
The Recovery Street Film Festival is a project that encourages people in recovery to share their stories through short film making. The process of making, sharing, viewing and reflecting on the festival films is designed to help us put aside the stereotypical narratives of addiction and connect through our shared hopes, aspirations, dreams and fears. The aim of the festival is to play a part in addressing the self, societal and structural stigma of addiction that creates harm and leads to discrimination.
