Our Labour Film Festivals celebrate national and international cinema with the twin objective of recognising and supporting new filmmakers and improving knowledge, accessibility and understanding of social and labour issues amongst a wide and diverse audience.
The Festival seeks to encourage creativity and support the dissemination of audiovisual works that contain stories about work and workers, giving priority to their point of view of the world and social issues affecting their daily work, the life of their families and of the the communities to which they belong.
Our Labour Film Festivals are supported by the TUC and the trade union movement in the UK including our main sponsors Unite and Unison. We aim to provide quality entertainment with social awareness, offering a bright and sensitive look at the world of work.
We would like to say a special thanks to Construir Cine for their support in the creation of this contest.
