It’s been a busy week, kicking of with the Recovery Street Film Festival on Monday 2nd September at Kings Cross Everyman.
We were very excited to attend the event and catch up with old friends and make new ones. ‘Sing’ will be touring the country this month at the RSFF events. It’s a great feeling to be included together with some excellent shorts that promote recovery. Congratulations to the winning film ‘The Beast Inside Me’, by Junaid Khan

Yesterday I went to Saffron Screen’s Rainbow Film Festival for the premiere of ‘Home’ by Sarah Outen and Jen Randall. It’s an incredibly compelling film of courage and love, of survival against the odds and bravery. The film traces her monumental expedition around the world by kayak, bike and rowing boat. It’s fascinating to see the people she meets from around the globe, the different cultures, how they live and the support they give her. We see her struggle against the elements of nature and her more personal physical and mental health journey through the odyssey.
I was delighted to meet Sarah after her Q & A, she is a true British adventurer and positive role model. Sarah is training to be a child psychotherapist, using her lived experience of grief, PTSD and strength to help young people.
“Home”, sums up everything Sobriety Films stands for, healing, courage and indomitable spirit in the face of adversity. Miss this film at your peril. Many congratulations to Sarah and her team for making an exceptional feature length documentary. Thank you to Programming Manager at Saffron Screen, Rebecca del Tufo, for inviting me to a thrilling premiere.
