So much has happened with Schoolidarity (and the scrappy unions it covers) since our last post.
Schoolidarity was named as a SILVER AWARD WINNER in the Spotlight Documentary Film Awards! The organization viewed nearly 20,000 pieces of documentary subject matter from around the world, including features, shorts, and much more. 250 films were then chosen to be the best of 2015, and Schoolidarity is one of them. "I'm so humbled by this honor," said director Andrew Friend. "This is a validation that the message of the film is not an isolated one for public unions alone."
Also, Schoolidarity appeared in the Idyllwild Festival of International Cinema in early January 2016. And we have just received word that the Missoula Labor Film Festival will show the film on May2, 2016, part of the network of Global Labor Film Festivals that celebrate International Workers Day with the power of film. Thank you so much Idyllwild and Missoula for this opportunity.
