The first and largest mental health film festival in the world, Rendezvous with Madness (RWM), presented by Workman Arts (WA), returns to TIFF Bell Lightbox alongside the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema and Workman Theatre from November 6 - 14 for its 23rd edition. The nine-day festival showcases 20+ programs with almost 40 feature and short films, a multi-media installation exhibition and full day symposium with a spotlight on television and addiction.
The festival kicks off at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, 506 Bloor St West on Friday, November 6, with the World Premiere of Swift Current - the electrifying saga of former hockey star Sheldon Kennedy. From hotshot young prospect to shattered alcoholic to high profile advocate for victims of sexual abuse – Kennedy's story is given potent documentary treatment by director Joshua Rofé, who creates an intensely affecting case for a culture that still has a long way to go when it comes to acknowledging both the frequency and the impact of the exploitation of the most vulnerable by those in positions of power. Special guests Rofé and Kennedy will participate in an in depth post-screening discussion. On Saturday, November 7 at the Workman Theatre, 651 Dufferin Street our annual symposium Transfixed: Addiction and TV takes place and will include three panels addressing the symbiotic relationship between digital media and addiction. Screenings continue on Sunday, November 8 with the remainder of the festival taking place at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Reitman Square, 350 King Street West, Monday - Saturday, November 9 - 14.
Most screenings are followed by a discussion with artists, mental health professionals and/or people with lived mental health experience. RWM presents powerful, entertaining and compelling images of mental health from around the world. These diverse viewpoints capture the global discussion surrounding mental health and encourage the breakdown of stigma across many cultures.
