Series Synopsis: A joint effort of the Rochester Labor Council and the Dryden Theatre at George Eastman House, the Rochester Labor Film Series presents motion pictures that celebrate workers.  The first annual film program of its kind in the nation, it shows feature films and documentaries depicting important aspects of work usually marginalized or absent on the screens of commercial theaters. These films from around the world are selected to inform, provoke and inspire. The series celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2014; click here for the ROCHESTER’S LABOR FILM SERIES AT 25 essay.

Every year’s schedule since 1989 — including film write-ups — is available on the website.
Introducing Labor Films: Introductions to films in the Rochester Labor Film Series: From A Grin Without a Cat to Trash Dance, introductions intended to supply background on the issues raised in a film, offer insight into the film’s production or the filmmaker’s intent, or help viewers to understand the film during or after the screening. A great tool for labor film festival organizers, viewers or anyone interested in labor films.
