The Labor Film Database lists thousands of films and videos, searchable by title, director, actors, keywords (see search window at right) or category (at right, below “Categories”) to make it easier to find films and videos about the topics you’re interested in. Many of the entries also include trailers, film stills and distributor contact info.
Categories include: Highly Recommended Labor Films; Labor Film Festivals; New/Just Added; Available Online; Genre; Occupation/Type of Work; Themes.

Recent additions include “9to5: The Story of a Movement”

HELP BUILD THE DATABASE! The Database is a handy resource for labor film festival programmers and anyone interested in films about work, workers and worker’s issues. We’re constantly updating the database with films new and old and welcome your suggestions for additions; just complete the comment form (see “Leave a Reply” below).

    I was trying to figure out what person(s) or organization maintains the Labor Film Database? It’s a wonderful resource and I wanted to know who to thank for it! Sincerely, Suzanne (Librarian at Catherwood Library)
