Call for Films--In The Mind’s Eye 2008: Issues of Substance Use in Film + Forum

In The Mind's Eye:  Issues of Substance Use in Film + Forum is seeking films- shorts, features, documentaries etc., for this unique 10 week series that combines a film festival with keynote presentations and workshops related to issues of drugs, including alcohol.  The series is offered free at venues across Waterloo Region (one hour west of Toronto).  More than 4,500 people have attended this series in the last two years.

In The Mind's Eye 2008 seeks films that address issues of stereotypes and stigmatization for people who are, or have, used drugs and/or alcohol.  Films created by people most affected by substance use--those who use/have used drugs for example--are a high priority for this series as are issues of prevention/education, harm reduction, treatment and criminal justice systems.  We aim to offer a real glimpse into issues of substance use for service providers, those affected and the general public.
