11th Annual LA Reel Recovery Film Festival & Symposium
Event is from Oct. 11 to Oct. 17, 2019
THE REEL RECOVERY FILM FESTIVAL & SYMPOSIUM was created in 2008 by Leonard Buschel to shine a light on the ongoing epidemic of substance abuse and mental disorders and to raise awareness and reduce the stigma that still plague these issues. This multi-day event is a celebration of film, the arts, writing and creativity. We showcase filmmakers who make honest films about addiction, alcoholism, behavioral disorders, treatment and recovery. Slated for screening is an eclectic lineup of contemporary and classic films, documentaries and shorts from American and international, first-time filmmakers and industry veterans. The festival is for people who love film, love being exposed to new filmmakers, and who have an interest in the human drama and human comedy of people dealing with issues of dependence, addiction and/or recovery. When someone decides that their life is greatly improved by not drinking or taking other intoxicants, they dont lose their artistic sensibilities. We keep our intellect and we keep our cultural interests very wide and we take what we learn in the rooms into the world. He added, None of this would be possible without the incredible support of our sponsors and the filmmakers who seek to share their work with the world.
