RFN @ Tolpuddle 2017

In 2017 the RFN hosted by The Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival, gathered at the Tolpuddle Martyr’s Festival from 14.00 on Thursday 13th – 14.00 on Saturday 15th July.

The event consisted of an exciting programme including:

  • Panel discussions between documentary filmmakers and trade union members.
  • Discussions on the larger impact of trade disputes on community and democracy
  • Research into the space of the everyday in “Cinemas of Conflict”
  • Research into the “Third Space” in relation to archival practices
  • Bill Douglas’ Comrades (1986), and Tolpuddle Martyrs memorialisation in Dorset
  • Workshops focusing on radical screening and audience engagement practices;
  • Politically engaged international experimental and artist’s film screening and sharing of related practice-based research
  • Space to discuss and think ahead to the RFN’s 1968-2018-2068 event in Scotland as well as other RFN sharing and planning.
