Presentation before 20% of the Montana Communist Party on visit to Washington DC.

2014_glf_finalAs part of my work with The Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival, I’ve just returned from the fourth annual Global Labor Film Festival Organizers Conference (GLFFOC) in Washington DC. It was 2 full days this year including screenings of labor films as well as interesting and useful presentations by participants and guests.

The participants included; Brazilian International Labour Film Festival, Rochester (NY) Labor Film Series, Reel Work May Day Labor Film Festival, Taiwan International Labor Film Festival, San Francisco LaborFest, Workers Unite Film Festival (NYC), May Day Workers Film Festival (San Diego), DC LaborFest, the WVU Institute for Labor Studies and Research and many more!

It was a great chance to meet other people who organize labor film festivals around the world, learn from them and share our experiences. We heard from labor film experts, talked about how each of our film festivals work, and looked at areas we’re looking to improve, and discussed practical ways we can help each other.

I was particularly delighted to meet a participant from Missoula who is one of the 5 members of the CPUSA who live in Montana, that hot bed of Commie’s and Pinko’s! So technically I have presented the work of the Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival before 20% of the Montana members of the CPUSA! Reeesult!

We were honoured to be greeted by the President of the AFL-CIO , Richard Trumka, who made some great opening remarks.

    Do you union types raise your fists to symbolize that you’re ready to punch scabs?

    Could these films be characterized as propaganda?
