Six films have been chosen to illustrate that addiction is a treatable illness and that recovery is possible. Many of the films are based on the true stories of people who have suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction and recovered through treatment and the support of 12-step programs. Others are realistic portrayals of the devastation caused by addiction. All contain a message of hope.
Five nationally-recognized experts in the field of addiction and recovery have been invited to make information presentations after several of the films. The audience for the festival is intended to include treatment professionals, people in recovery and the general public.

THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.
