Premiere Screening of Behind the Fare at Mayworks 2016!

CLiFF is proud to co-present the premiere screening of ‘Behind the Fare‘ at this year’s Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts!

FILM: Behind the Fare
Directors: Mariam Zaidi and Loveleen Kaur
World premiere | 20 minutes | 2016 | English

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 @ 7 pm
Alliance Française de Toronto – Centre culturel
24 Spadina Road, Toronto, Ontario M5R2S7

Tickets: $5 PWYC
Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1125823614116328/?active_tab=highlights

About the film: Behind the Fare is a film that follows the stories of taxi drivers in Toronto as they push back against the infringement of the foreign corporation, Uber, on their livelihoods. Putting their differences aside, the taxi community forms a united front to make itself heard but the city continues to ignore their demands. Their jobs, families, and communities remain in an increasingly precarious position. The media, consumers and politicians are not on their side as they continue to resist and organize on how to keep surviving in a rapidly changing industry. Following an important moment in Canadian labour history, this film sheds light on an issue far more complex than the headlines of ‘Taxi vs. Uber’.

The screening is followed by a talkback with the filmmakers and panelists from the taxi industry.

Co-presented with Alliance Française de Toronto – Centre culturel, Canadian Labour International Film Festival (CLiFF), Cinema Politica at The Bloor, Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT), Regent Park Film Festival, South Asian Visual Arts Centre.

Behind the Fare will be screened as part of the 31st annual Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts, set to take place from May 1 – 14, 2016 at various GTA locations. For more information, please visit: www.mayworks.ca.
