Here’s a small film competition opportunity to get you warmed up for this year’s Social Justice film festival — which will also feature a special focus on labor issues.
This year, the MayWorks Committee of the Washington State Labor Council presents the 5th annual WSLC Video Contest. Submit your 3- to 5-minute film with the theme of “Hold the Fort,” documenting how people are trying to improve their work lives and the lives of others, for your chance to win cash prizes and have it showcased at the MayWorks events.
Historically, the labor movement has been a driving force in the production of arts and culture. Union members have used music and art to affirm the work they do on the job, at home, in their communities, and in their unions. MayWorks is a month long celebration of that culture and the art of workers.
The deadline to submit entries is Monday, May 16. Send them electronically to the WSLC c/o Willa Hockley-Smith, 321 16th Ave. South, Seattle, WA, 98144. Email her or call 206-281-8901 for more information.
