THE 5TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL, MAY 5TH - 26TH, 2016
The Workers Unite Film Festival is a celebration of
global labor solidarity in New York City each May.
Welcome to our 5th season! See the full schedule of films for #WUFFNYC on Eventbrite. Check back here often for more updated information. We have powerful and provocative programs on Black Lives Matter, The Fight for $15, global and domestic income inequality, women's rights to equal pay and to control their own bodies, immigration rights, workers' rights to organize a union, fight for workplace dignity and fair wages, as well as the stunning multi-media production of Every Fold Matters, a hybrid performance of film and theater, which looks at the charged, intimate, unseen and underpaid work of cleaning other people's clothes in a public space. As told by female employees inside a neighborhood laundromat, this stunning new production highlights many of the ongoing themes of the Workers Unite Film Festival 2016.
The Workers Unite Film Festival is a celebration of Global Labor Solidarity.
The Festival aims to showcase student and professional films from the United States and around the world which publicize and highlight the struggles, successes and daily lives of all workers in their efforts to unite and organize for better living conditions and social justice.
