WUFF to Host July 19th NYC Premiere of ‘At War’, Stéphane Brizé's Gripping French Drama

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.
We are a not-for-profit -501(c)(3) organization
The 9th season of the Workers Unite Film Festival is poised to be the biggest and best yet, with more attendees, more venues, more creative energy and many more submissions. With over 30 programs throughout NYC and over 60 films and events, WUFF has grown to be one of the largest worker/labor dedicated cultural events in the country.
