Welcoming representatives from 20 festivals in 11 states, the UK, Taiwan and Pakistan, Trumka said that “What you all are doing here is absolutely wonderful.” The only conference of its kind in the world, the October 8-9 event – which expanded to two days this year -- is organized by the DC LaborFest, and Trumka was introduced by LaborFest Chair Jos Williams...
‘As your festivals grow and spread through this country and the world, our movement for working families will spread,” Trumka said. “Keep up the good work!”
The conferees agreed to hold another Global Labor Film Festival in May 2015, and to include a labor shorts contest, as well as to continue building solidarity among labor film festivals around the world.
