Union Film Fest  

You'll notice a new icon on the left of the screen. It's for The DC Metro Council's Labor Film Fest this Fall. If you click the image, it will take you to the page and you can see for yourself, the amazing movies that will be shown at AFI in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Here's the announcement from this morning's Metro Labor Council:

LABOR FILMFEST SET FOR OCTOBER: The 8th annual DC Labor FilmFest will be held from October 9-12, organizers report. The FilmFest, one of the only labor-themed film festivals in the world, screens films from around the world celebrating the struggle for social justice. Click here for details; ad space is available in the popular Festival Guide, which is distributed to all FilmFest-goers and supports the FilmFest, which is now coordinating a year-round program of free screenings. The free screenings have already drawn hundreds for nine screenings of seven films this year, including At The River I Stand, A. Philip Randolph: For Jobs and Freedom, Mother Jones: America's Most Dangerous Woman, Fired!, Women Organize!, Sicko, and Grassroots Rising! with a full schedule set for May and June at the AFL-CIO, the American Federation of Teachers and the National Labor College. “With our new year-round calendar and expanded line-up of activities, your support is more important than ever to ensuring the Labor FilmFest's existence and growth,” says FilmFest Co-Chair Jos Williams.
