The Canadian Labour International Film Festival (CLiFF) is a chance for workers to showcase their struggles, lives, successes and working conditions. Activists have an easier time than ever accessing cameras and editing software that allows them to tell their own stories but finding a place to show these narratives is becoming increasingly difficult. CLiFF doesn't just show films, but it also encourages workers to make their own.
From unionized workers abroad to un-unionized workers in Canada, CLiFF screens the stories of youth activists, trade union members, educators, artists, allies and other workers. The festival is hosted in 50 communities across Canada.
The festival started in 2009 and was also the first ever labour oriented film festival in Canada. Find out how to host your own CLiFF!
