REEL RECOVERY FILM FESTIVAL FIGHTS ADDICTION CRISIS
ONE FRAME AT A TIME

The Longest Recovery Event In America Saves Lives And Spreads Hope Through Movies

NEW YORK, NY – 7th Annual Reel Recovery Film Festival & Symposium

he 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 veteran to first-time filmmakers.

The festival has earned praise for addressing the critical issues facing one in six Americans today, either those in recovery, the “sober curious” or the still suffering. The opioid and addiction epidemic produces daily headlines making the festival more relevant than ever.

Co-founded in 2008 by addiction specialist Leonard Lee Buschel and Robert Downey, Sr., the Reel Recovery Film Festival has grown to entertain, inform and inspire 30,000+ attendees, by showing between 50-65 films over a 7-day period. This year’s films come from as far away as Spain, Ukraine, Qatar and France, and as close as Woodside and Jackson Heights.
