PDXRFF 2023 was a huge success!!

This year’s event was the best yet!  With over 300 attendees and 16 sponsors, the PDX Recovery Film Festival was better than we could have imagined.  Thank you to filmmakers, sponsors, judges and audience, you all made it possible.


Take a look back at 2022

In 2022, we had a total of 360 submissions and 14 finalists!  We had 160 in person attendees who were able to vote on these fantastic films.  A huge thank you to those who supported the effort, we were able to raise over $21,000 for live saving services to our community.


The first PDX Recovery Film Festival

Bridges to Change’s first PDXRFF was an absolute success.  We had submission from all around the country.  Over 300 people attended the virtual festival.

You can watch this engaging panel discussion from the festival with executive directors Monta Knudson (BTC), Tera Hurst (Health Justice Recovery Alliance) and Chris Bouneff (NAMI Oregon) as they talk about the behavioral health system and homelessness with thoughts on how to be a catalyst for change.

The PDX Recovery Film Festival was made possible with the help of these organizations
