Since launching the third Recovery Street Film Festival in April, your three-minute film submissions have been piling in. Organisers of the festival are using this as an opportunity to remind people that submissions are open until 29th July 2016, so there is still time to have your story heard and be in with a chance of winning one of three prizes!
The winning films will be picked by a panel of experts, including people shortlisted in last year’s festival, and will be shown at locations across the UK including Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and London. The aim of the festival is to break down stigma by opening up conversations, and to show what recovery can look like.
The Recovery Street Film Festival is led by a group of drug and alcohol treatment charities, including Action on Addiction, Addaction, Adfam, the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Blenheim CPD, Phoenix Futures and Turning Point.
If you would like to submit a film and tell your own story of recovery, visit the Competition Information page for more information, including tips on how to make your own three-minute film. You can also download an A4 poster about the competition.
