Friday 15 July 2016 – Sunday 17 July 2016
Due the huge success of the 2014 & 2015 Festivals the Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival is returning in 2016. Produced by Public Domain & Gorilla Cinema the radical film festival will run in tandem with the main Tolpuddle Festival.
Cultures Of Resistance
There's more than one way to skin a cat, as the old saying goes, and from the in yer-face, aggression of the Black Panthers, through to the non-violence of Martin Luther King, and via some gay miners in the Welsh valleys and the Kayapó tribe of the Brazilian rainforest, the 2016 Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival explores some of the diverse communities of protest from across the world and their distinct Cultures Of Resistance. The full programme for 2016 can be found here.

Ken Loach is a supporter of the film festival and says:
“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
