Can you believe 2019 is the 11th anniversary of the Canadian Labour International Film Festival!
Because of our unique method of bringing screenings to workers, we have shown over 175 films about work and workers in over 150 locations across Canada. All of our screenings are organized by trade unionists and social activists in cities and communities all across Canada. Our voluntary Board of Directors and Location Coordinators are proud of the work we do bringing together labour and community activists to enjoy incredible films, as well as discuss important social and political issues.
This year also marks the 100th anniversary of the Winnipeg General Strike. With workers today facing constant threats of privatization, cuts to education and healthcare, stagnant wages as well as increasingly unaffordable housing and living costs, 2019 is an important year to remember what we can accomplish when we work collectively. It is an aim of the festival, to educate and inspire workers on fighting for social change.
Our festival is run entirely on the generosity of donations from event attendees and organisations that support worker’s rights. We thank you all for your generous financial, outreach, and volunteer support.
We look forward to seeing you at this years screenings!
