About Sobriety Films in Gold

Sobriety Films was set up in 2017. It is a not for profit collective of filmmakers, producing documentaries about recovery from addiction, mental ill health, trauma and disability concerns. It champions diversity and inclusion, promoting understanding and awareness raising of societal and community issues. All crew and contributors have lived experience of the issues concerned.  Sobriety Films strives to include individuals from the BAME and LGBT population.  And also those with disabilities.

We aim to make documentaries of outstanding quality, which will be entertaining to commercial and diverse audiences.

All profit raised by Sobriety Films is ploughed back into the company, so we can carry on making films and carrying out activities that support and promote recovery in all its forms.
