Some Notes on Int. Labor Film Festival from Gerardo Renique

The Festival Travels to Turkey
Our festival is completely free and we encourage everyone to attend. After the screening of the films in 1-7 May 2006, the entire collection is carried to even the most remotest places in the country where municipalities, labor unions and other progressive organizations organize the festival films to be shown to the public for free. A heated debate and discussion follows the screening. we have selected for the festival, and the "roaming festival" became a major event in these places. The demand for the festival to visit the towns and villages, for an event that has only started last year, is so high that we can not accommodate all the requests at this time. Last year's festival has also been carried to Germany, where a great number of Turkish/Kurdish workers earn their living, where the event will be repeated in December
