Sponsors of The Small Axe Radical Short Film Awards 2019

chosen radial

The Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival is unique in the UK in that it is funded entirely by trade unionists and the trade union movement.

The festival is run entirely by unpaid volunteers but we need to raise £3500 every year to pay for screening fees and the hire of the Vintage Mobile Cinema.

The Magnificent Seven Sponsors fund about 60% of the costs but we still need to raise £1300.

Any help you, your union, branch or trade council will be much appreciated.

Donations can be paid by BACS to Acc: 65127676  Sort Code: 53 – 61 – 31

The main Tolpuddle Festival is perhaps the most important cultural event in the calendar of the labour movement and anyone working for progressive political change in the UK. Theatre, music, literature, painting and crafts are all well represented at Tolpuddle, but film only made it’s first appearance in 2014.

Film is a crucial tool for social change and surely must continue to have a presence at Tolpuddle? And for less than £3000 each year it can. But only if all of us lefties, radicals, socialists, anarchists, trade unionists and fellow travellers come together to raise the money.

So every year we ask individuals, Trade Unions, Trade Union Branches, Regional TUC’s and Trade Councils to come on board as Sponsors and Supporters of the TRFF.
