Daniel Baldwin will be the featured celebrity guest at New Jersey’s first Recovery Film Festival, with a screening of his feature film The Wisdom to Know the Difference. The event is taking place at Kean University in the STEM Building June 2-3, 2017. The film festival will commence with a VIP Reception on Friday evening June 2nd, with Baldwin, his screening, live music entertainment, speakers and a network of local health and recovery professionals with honored filmmakers alike in attendance. Saturday, June 3rd will feature film screenings all day, with an exhibitor fair and entertainment in between film blocks.
With the support of SOBA Recovery CEO Greg Hannley, Daniel wrote, directed and co-starred in The Wisdom to Know the Difference, an award-winning film acclaimed by the New York Times as the “Best Recovery Film of All Time”. Based in part on actual events, Wisdom to Know the Difference is a story about a man’s journey to bring his sobriety full circle. “What a great honor to be included in such an important festival. I am very excited to be a part of this prestigious event,” said Daniel Baldwin.
The Festival Director, Chris Capaci of Capacity Images states "I am excited about the opportunity to have Daniel Baldwin as our guest. What a privilege it is for us that he will be sharing his film and his story at our festival this year."
The event will benefit the Raymond J. Lesniak Experience Strength Hope Recovery High School (ESH). ESH is New Jersey’s first public Recovery High School. Sober high schools, as some refer to them, are designed to create a drug free environment for young people where education, recreation and recovery go hand in hand.
“We are honored to have the support of Daniel Baldwin and the many talented filmmakers in this year’s festival as we witness Experience Strength and Hope through the art of filmmaking, “ said Pamela Capaci, CEO Prevention Links.
