Bright Lane Studios
545 King St. W., Toronto

Join the cast and crew of the TIFF documentary film “The Stairs” for a one hour panel discussion on the making of the film. Hear from Director Hugh Gibson and 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).

The event is part of Healthy Minds Canada’s regular Lunch & Learn series and the 2nd we’ve done to celebrate writers and directors who focus on mental health and addiction in film.

About The Stairs:

Shot over the course of several years, Hugh Gibson’s profoundly affecting and compassionate documentary examines the lives of habitual drug users in Toronto’s Regent Park.
