Call for Submissions--In The Mind’s Eye 2010: Issues of Substance Use in Film + Forum

In The Mind’s Eye 2010: Issues of Substance Use in Film + Forum is seeking films- shorts, features, documentaries etc.- for this unique series that combines a film festival with keynote presentations and workshops related to issues of drugs, including alcohol.

The two-month series is offered free at venues across Waterloo Region- 1 hour west of Toronto. More than 8,000 people have attended this series.

In The Mind’s Eye 2010 seeks films that raise drug-related issues, including stereotypes and stigmatization for people who use, or did use, substances. Films created by people who use or are affected by substance use are a high priority for this series. In The Mind's Eye also addresses issues of prevention, harm reduction, treatment and justice systems, including drug policy. We aim to offer a real glimpse into issues of substance use for service providers, those affected and the general public.

This unique series is offered free of charge in October and November.
