Sponsors & Supporters

The Tolpuddle Radical Film Festival (TRFF) is unique in that it is the only film festival in the UK funded entirely by Trade Unions, Trade Councils and individuals.

The main is perhaps the most important cultural event in the calendar of the labour movement and anyone working for progressive political change in the UK. Theatre, music, literature, painting and crafts are all well represented at Tolpuddle, but film only made it's first appearance in 2014.

Film is a crucial tool for social change and surely must continue to have a presence at Tolpuddle? And for less than £3000 each year it can. But only if all of us lefties, radicals, socialists, anarchists, trade unionists and fellow travellers come together to raise the money.

So every year we ask individuals, Trade Unions, Trade Union Branches, Regional TUC's and Trade Councils to come on board as Sponsors and Supporters of the TRFF.


Supporter = £5 - £50

Donations can range from £5-£50. Supporters will be acknowledged on our website.

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 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.


This year's films include:
