On September 15th, about 40 people came out to listen to the cast and crew (including Director Hugh GIbson) of the #TIFF16 film “The Stairs”, a Canadian documentary about the brave people from Toronto’s own Regent Park whose lives he captured as they struggle with addiction.

Moderated by Geoff Pevere (@GeoffPevere), Program Director for Toronto’s Rendezvous With Madness Film Festival (the oldest film festival exclusively devoted to showcasing works addressing mental health, addiction and recovery issues), guests were treated to a one hour discussion which covered the making of the film, the “casting”, and the subject of harm reduction.

And if you missed seeing the film during #TIFF16, The Stairs opens at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on October 6th.
