Our Labour Film Festivals celebrate national and international cinema with the twin objective of recognising and supporting new filmmakers and improving knowledge, accessibility and understanding of social and labour issues amongst a wide and diverse audience.

The Festival seeks to encourage creativity and support the dissemination of audiovisual works that contain stories about work and workers, giving priority to their point of view of the world and social issues affecting their daily work, the life of their families and of the the communities to which they belong.




We are delighted to announce the opening of the Labour film Festival International Contest 2017. This is an engaging NEW format for our festivals (London & North West) built around an impressive, shorts and feature length film contest.

We are asking people to enter our contest with films that tell stories related to the world of work and of workers and their lives. You can read more about the themes here.

Our festivals provide quality entertainment with social awareness, offering a bright and sensitive look at the world of work. We are looking for works that contribute to this expanding film genre.

The global judging panel will include at least three big personalities from the film industry. The contest is open until 20 October 2017.

The contest of short films will be divided into 2 categories:

1) Documentary short film
2) Fiction short film

The winners in each category will receive the sum of £250

The contest of feature films will be divided into 3 categories:

1) International documentary feature film 
2) International fiction feature film 
3) National feature film

The winners in each category will receive the sum of £500

There will be an opportunity to view the short-listed entries at our festivals (London & North West) which will be held in November this year (details, dates, and locations to be announced).

The winners will be announced at our festival awards ceremony in London, November 26th 2017.

All awarded prizes in all categories will receive a statue of ‘Labour Film Festival International Contest 2017– film festival about work' which will be presented at the awards and closing ceremonies of the festival.

The short films that will are awarded in all categories will be shared across our social media platforms and on our website.

In solidarity,
