The Mostra CineTrabalho / Brazilian International Labour Film Festival (BILFF) is a university extension activity of the UNESP – São Paulo State University. The event merges the cultural characteristics of a film festival with the academic discipline of social sciences to bring together knowledge and a critical view of the labour world. The BILFF aims to honour and support the film-makers whose productions regard working conditions and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of a wide range of labour issues. 

The submissions for the 2018 edition are now open!

We are accepting films in the fiction, documentary, narrative, experimental and animation. The Festival is open to all lengths but there is a preference for shorter works.

There is no entry fee to submit a film to BILFF.

All submissions must be sent electronically via e-mail.

The deadline is March 31st, 2018.

The BILFF is organised by the University Extension Programme Tela Crítica with the support of the UNESP Vice-Chancellor for Extension, and is promoted by the Labour Studies Network (RET – Rede de Estudos do Trabalho) and the Globalisation Studies and Research Group.

Organisers: Prof. Dr Giovanni Alves (Coordinator) and Elson Menegazzo (Curator)
