September is International Recovery Month. An initiative started in America 27 years ago with a handful of local Recovery Walks has exploded into a world wide celebration that is growing year on year.

The belief that being open about the problems, and more importantly the successes, of addiction would encourage those still suffering to ignore the stigma and reach out for help.

Our film festival in Cape Town found it’s feet in September 2013 and has continued to develop and grow over the last 5 years. More recently, 2015 saw the inaugural Cape Town Recovery Walk – 2017 will be the 3rd of these events.
