Workers Unite Film Festival Celebrates Global Labor Solidarity
October 7, 2022 – October 21, 2022 EDT
Schedule and tickets at www.workersunitefilmfestival.org
The Workers Unite Film Festival is a celebration of Global Labor Solidarity and New York’s only labor film festival. The Festival aims to showcase student and professional films from the United States and around the world which publicize and highlight the struggles, successes and daily lives of all workers in their efforts to unite and organize for better living conditions and social justice. The organizers are deeply connected to and support both the American labor movement and the fight of all workers around the globe to achieve lives filled with respect for their rights and dignity on the job.
This is the 11th Annual Workers Unite Film Festival – NYC Celebrates Global Labor Solidarity! Our Festival is scheduled between the 100th anniversary of the success of the “Bread and Roses” strike in Lawrence, MA., the 101st anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, a rallying point for organizing American workers and May Day, the international workers day of unity. The Eleventh Annual Workers Unite Film Festival will be held from October 7th to 21st – at the historic downtown Manhattan movie theater, Cinema Village, as well as other labor union and community group auditoriums throughout the city.
We seek to join forces with our working brothers and sisters from around the world, both organized in existing unions and those currently fighting to organize for their workplace rights. Our goal is to broadcast our stories of struggle and victory around the mainstream media that often pretend that we – the 99%, count for less than the celebrities and corporate titans normally showcased in those mainstream media outlets.
