LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2023 / — Writers In Treatment and The Guest House, Ocala is excited to announce The 15th Annual REEL Film Festival & Symposium. The 3-day event showcases first-time filmmakers and experienced professionals who make films about addiction, treatment, recovery and mental health issues.

After each film, the filmmaker will perform a question-and-answer session or a clinician will do a mini-interactive process group with audience members. There will be engagement with the audience to welcome their comments, reviews, feelings and observations. These discussions will offer information on addiction as experienced by communities and families.

The REEL Film Festival & Symposium, in its 15th year, is scheduled for Friday, October 27, Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29 at the Laemmle NoHo Cinema in North Hollywood from 5 until 11 p.m.

The festival will conclude on Sunday with “Our American Family,” often compared to the iconic PBS series “An American Family.”

“Addiction is a human condition that affects many in a variety of ways. While these films may be difficult to watch, they can provoke empathy and sometimes act as a cautionary tale. They can help us understand ourselves or a loved one in a very powerful way.” said Leonard Lee Buschel, co-founder of Writers In Treatment and Creator of The REEL Film Festival & Symposium.

Mr. Buschel also expressed gratitude for the supporter of this year’s festival presenting sponsor The Guest House, Ocala.

In addition to films, there will also be a Narcan training session at the festival. Narcan training provides information on how to recognize an opioid overdose, administer naloxone, and care for the individual until emergency services arrive.
