Friday 18 July 2014 – Sunday 20 July 2014
We are launching the festival with a 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.
Ken Loach is supporting the festival and may come to speak: “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
