Nothing short of a revolution – CLiFF in the Media

Nothing short of a revolution: A conversation with Frank Saptel of the Canadian Labour International Film Festival

Founded in 2008 and funded by labour unions, CLiFF screens films about the world of ‘work and those who do it’. And while CLiFF is not the only film festival to specialise in labour films, it is special in its efforts to reflect its egalitarian ideals in its own structure. Reaching outside the hierarchical spaces of film festivals, the organisation brings the festival to the workplace and the factory, creating a community of workers and film lovers. In a world of compromised film festivals, CLiFF is an interesting lesson in the opportunities and limitations of a festival that does not compromise on its commitment to community and revolution.
