The inaugural Recovery Street Film Festival has now launched.

Organised by a consortium of treatment providers including Phoenix Futures, Turning Point, CRI, Blenheim and Action on Addiction, supported by Public Health England and Drugscope ( the festival aims to celebrate and promote recovery from substance misuse dependency.

We are on the hunt for anyone who wants to share their story through film around the theme 'deserving a future', focusing on living with the challenges of recovery.

A judging panel of film industry experts will select their chosen submissions to feature at 'pop-up' cinemas in London, Cardiff, Liverpool, Birmingham and Glasgow in September 2014. Qualifying films, including those not selected by the judges for the festival, will be available to watch and share on-line to promote education and insight around addiction and recovery. Not only will the judges' chosen films feature as part of the festival, the winner will also receive £1000 worth of film related prizes.
