Now is the time for of those of you who have promised to support the Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival but haven’t got round to it yet to finally click the button.
Thanks to the myriad of donors we are really nearly there with fund-raising for the first ever film event at Tolpuddle… but not quite!
Due to the generous support of Trade Councils, Union Branches and individuals across the UK we have to date raised £2,000 to make the festival a definite goer but we need £2,500 to cover all the expenses.
Any help you can give will be much appreciated and with such a modest target anything from £5 upwards will make a real difference.
You can donate on our Sponsume page here.
Or donate directly via Paypal here.
The inaugural Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival will run alongside the main Tolpuddle Festival and launches with an exclusive pre-release screening of Still The Enemy Within and will be theming the festival on mining and Trade Unionism in honour of the 30th anniversary of the 1984 Miners strike.
“I strongly support the idea of a Radical Film Festival at Tolpuddle. Films can bring in new ideas, new perspectives, new voices. As trade unionists we urgently need to re-examine our attitude to the existing parties. We need real political representation and to re-discover our militancy. Films that reflect struggles of working people can be a spur to action” Ken Loach
