A one of a kind Film and Art Festival for the recovery community. This 3-day event in Lake Worth, Florida will screen film at the Stonzek Theater. Dr. Cali Estes, the Addictions Coach, has been chosen as a featured keynote speaker for the Festival.
The Art of Recovery film festival takes over Lake Worth July 27-29 at the HATCH Center and Stonzak Theater. This is the second annual Art of Recovery Film Festival. Last year, Manny Mendez and his team were about to raise over $2000. This year they hope to raise even more as they branch out in the community of Lake Worth.
The highlight of the weekend will be the world premiere of “The Art for Hope Tour Film Project,” produced by Manny Mendez and directed by Richard Jackson. The film took them through 9 states on their way to the FedUp rally in Washington D.C. The team appeared as guests at the rally with a painting created to honor friends who have passed from opiate overdoses.
The Art of Recovery Film Festival highlights films that focus on sober living and recovery. Recovering addicts and alcoholics from all over come together for a charitable cause to raise money and awareness for addicts using art as their form of therapy to heal and grow.
Dr. Estes, along with the other presenters at the show are attempting to help end the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery issues. In her recent bestselling book “I Married A Junkie” Dr. Estes and her husband, professional drummer Tim Estes came clean about their amazing story as the couple struggled with Tim’s heroin addiction which threatened to end their relationship and his life.
“Through the telling of my personal story I hope to aid those in substance abuse recovery by providing some confidence that there is a better life for them beyond addiction,” stated Estes.
