Passionflower will screen at the Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday, November 14 at 6:30pm. The film will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival’s vaunted Lightbox Theatre.

The festival, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, showcases films dealing with mental illness and addiction. The festival partners with CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto). As the festival coordinators explain: “Film can also enable new and established artists to visually explore ideas and express stories of mental illness and addiction in ways that are nearly impossible in other artistic media. The technical freedom of film allows for these artists to challenge perceptions of reality and to express the truth of mental illness and addiction.”

After the screening, there will be a discussion with the film’s director, Shelagh Carter and other panelists.
