Recovery Street Film Festival was established eight years ago to give people with lived experience of recovering from drug, alcohol and gambling issues the opportunity to share their story with the public.
Throughout this time, their honest stories of recovery, hope and transformation have been seen by well over one million people, helping us towards our aim of reducing the societal stigma surrounding recovery.
The theme for RSFF 2022 is “who am I?” with entrants exploring how their identity and place in the world has shaped their recovery, or the recovery of those in their life.
We received an exceptional number of highly creative and diverse submissions to the film competition this year. As a result, we have expanded the number of films shortlisted from ten in previous years to fifteen.
Join us for a screening of the full 15-film shortlist on 30 September at the Everyman in Chelsea, with special guest speakers and an award ceremony to crown the top three filmmakers of RSFF 2022!
