Reel Recovery Film Festival Fights Addiction Crisis One Frame at a Time
The Longest Recovery Event In America Saves Lives, Spreads Hope Through Movies
The 11th Annual Reel Recovery Film Festival & Symposium returns October 11th-17th to the iconic Laemmle NoHo 7.
The seven-day event is a celebration of film, the arts and sobriety. It showcases honest films about addiction, alcoholism, behavioral disorders, and mental illness from first-time filmmakers to industry pros. As the opioid and addiction crisis makes headlines daily, the festival has become more relevant than ever. Attending are those in recovery, the “sober curious”, the afflicted, the general public and film lovers.
Co-founded in 2008 by addiction specialist Leonard Buschel and Robert Downey, Sr., the Reel Recovery Film Festival & Symposium has grown to entertain, inform and inspire 30,000+ attendees; showing between 50-65 films. This year’s films come from as far away as Spain, Ukraine and Qatar, and as close as Studio City.
