THE INTERNATIONAL REEL RECOVERY FILM FESTIVAL® IS BACK FOR ITS 13TH YEAR, NOVEMBER 5-11, STREAMING AND ONLINE TO A WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE. THE FESTIVAL IS AVAILABLE THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH FILM FESTIVAL FLIX®. ALL SUBMISSIONS ARE ALSO ELIGIBLE TO BE SHOWN ON THE REEL RECOVERY FILM CHANNEL.
WE ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2021 AND ENDING SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2021 WITH ROLLING NOTIFICATIONS
The Annual Reel Recovery Film Festival screens films dealing with all aspects and perspectives of ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES: The consequences, tragedies, comedies, scientific beliefs, personal experiences, societal influences, attitudes and medical issues, to name a few.
The mission of the festival is to give a forum to new and experienced filmmakers who have made honest and relevant films about the human condition and the world of addiction and recovery. ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST ADDRESS AN ANGLE OF ADDICTION, SUBSTANCE ABUSE, MENTAL HEALTH, SOCIAL DISPARITY AND/OR RECOVERY
We know there are filmmakers with brilliant perspectives on addiction whose work might be overlooked at a mainstream film festival. Last year we screened a very eclectic mix of features, shorts and documentaries . We don't want to wait every few years for Hollywood to embrace this subject when so many independent and established filmmakers are giving voice to this potentially tragic lifestyle.
Our film festivals are screened in New York, Los Angeles, Denver and Fort Lauderdale with the potential of additional cities. Festivals are held year round. Please see the website for festival dates.
SUBMISSIONS WILL BE CLOSED AUGUST 21ST
WIT offers free referrals for individuals suffering from alcoholism or addiction. We publish the weekly Addiction/ Recovery eBulletin and produce the national REEL Recovery Film Festival & Symposium.
