DC LaborFest

  • By Evan Henerson

    From its semi-humble beginnings 17 years ago as a weekend film festival focusing on labor related movies, the DC LaborFest has grown, diversified and blossomed into a month-long cultural event. The 2017 lineup, which kicks off Monday, includes 22 films, 17 labor tours, walks, bike rides, cultural tours and – new this year -  a union beer and whiskey tasting sponsored by Labor 411.

    The DC LaborFest recently wrapped up in Washington, D.C. where, for the 16th year, folks from  around the world gathered for film and cultural presentations that centered on the world and history of labor. Labor 411 sat down with the event’s creator, Chris Garlock, who gave us the latest on this year’s showing and what DC LaborFest means for the labor movement.

Anchored by the DC Labor FilmFest – which includes screenings of Concussion, 99 Homes, The 33, and much more – the annual festival boasts everything from film screenings and live music to soccer and lectures on labor history.
