Santa Fe Film Festival

The Santa Fe Film Festival, Dec. 2-6 2015, has invited Schoolidarity as an official selection! We had an impressive showing there at the IATSE Local 480 hall in May 2015 as part of the Santa Fe Labor Film Fest, and the selection committee liked what they saw. I'll post specific info when available, but it looks like the film will play on Friday Dec. 4.
