CLiFF goes to Whitehorse!

19 November, 2012
For Immediate Release

CLiFF comes to town!
Four Yukon Communities showcase films about the world of work and those who do it.

The Canadian Labour International Film Festival is a festival showcasing films about the world of work and those who do it. In its 4th year this truly national film festival will screen in over 50 Canadian cities during November. We are excited that in our 3rd year of sponsorship the Yukon Employees’ Union will host screenings in 4 YUKON COMMUNITIES.

The films include We are Wisconsin, showcasing the recent public uprising in Wisconsin which sparked the North American Occupy Movement and Milk Honey and Tomatoes, focusing on a Palestinian boy forced to work for Israelis on land once owned by his father.

Festival founder Frank Saptel will be in Whitehorse to open the festival on November 23. Mr. Saptel will host a lunch round table meeting for local filmmakers with an interest in making and submitting films to CLiFF on the general topics of work, workers’ rights and struggles, social justice and aboriginal justice. All interested in attending the lunch should contact Lynn Simmons, Office of the REVP of PSAC North Julie Docherty, 867-446-2532.

Festival dates throughout Yukon are:
Watson Lake, 7 pm, Wed. November 21 at the Northern Lights Centre
Whitehorse, 7pm Fri. November 23 at the MacBride Museum
Dawson City, 7pm Fri. November 23 at the Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre
Old Crow, 7pm Thurs. November 29 at the Youth Centre
