Workers Unite! Film Festival

May 5 - May 25

workers_unite_header_redTHE 6TH ANNUAL WORKERS UNITE! FILM FESTIVAL MAY 5TH TO 25TH, 2017

The Workers Unite Film Festival is a celebration of
global labor solidarity in New York City each May.

 

As a result of the Trump election, labor unions and workers will certainly be at risk for seeing a roll back of many hard won labor rights, workers’ protections and overtime pay rules. We need to shout these stories loud and clear, now more than ever. The GOP Congress has already started the process to bring a National Right to Work bill to pass. We will fight back by speaking truth to this evil new power trying to destroy us!

This season we will kick off the festival with A Global Gathering. This is our opening conference on the role of film and culture in organizing for social justice and how worker film festivals can be formed and survive. We will be screening films and producing live events in at least three community centers around NYC, Empire State College/SUNY – The Van Arsdale Institute, Cornell ILR – The Workers Institute, the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Labor Studies and Worker Education and our home base – Cinema Village. We also have locations in Brooklyn @ Nitehawk Cinema & Queens @ NYTWA in LIC
