Films, videos and film festivals that focus on work, workers and worker’s issues
2015 GLOBAL LABOR FILM FESTIVAL SET FOR MAY!
Workers’ lives on the silver screen are the focus of this year’s third annual Global Labor Film Festival. This year’s Global Labor Film Festival brings together labor film festivals in ten cities around the world – Santa Fe (a brand-new labor film festival!) to Israel and London to California – who each screen a labor-themed film of their choice during the month of May, chosen because May 1 — International Workers’ Day — is a national holiday in more than 80 countries and celebrated unofficially in many other countries.

The Labor Film Database lists nearly 2,000 films and videos, searchable by title, director, actors and/or keywords (see search window at right). We’ve also categorized the database (at right, below “Categories”) and you can check out our tag cloud (also at right) to make it easier to find films and videos about the topics you’re interested in. Many of the entries also include trailers and film stills.
