THANKS NYC AND ALL OUR LABOR FRIENDS FOR THE BEST FESTIVAL YET!
This fifth season of the Workers Unite Film Festival was the biggest and best yet, with more attendees, more venues, more creative energy and many more submissions (nearly 160 projects on workers, their lives and their efforts to build their unions). With over 40 programs all over NYC and over 80 films and events, #WUFFNYC has grown to be one of the largest worker/labor dedicated cultural events in the country.
