Workers on Film: An Evening with CLiFF

Tuesday, October 8, 7:00 p.m.
Steelworkers’ Hall, 25 Cecil St.

Imagine a world where thousands of films are made about workers and the conditions under which they live, work, fight, and succeed in their daily lives! Instead, the world of labour has found it increasingly difficult to communicate its message as fewer and fewer people have greater control over the means of communication – the media.

It is more important than ever that working people be able to tell their own stories in their own words and in their own images.

With the wide availability of digital still and video cameras, camera-phones, and other tools, activists can now make their stories – but still find it difficult to exhibit their narratives. The Canadian Labour International Film Festival (CLiFF) is that venue.

Hear from three CLiFF Board members, watch some short films, and discuss how you can play a role in sharing our collective messages!
