The Acting Class film at the Casa Saturday

3 November 2017

All the world's a stage, but not all the players are equal
The Acting Class film at the Casa

The Acting Class documentary film about class inequality in acting will be screened at the Casa on Hope St, Liverpool on Saturday November 4th at 11.30am as part of the North West Labour Film Festival.
This feature length documentary is shortlisted for Labour’s 2017 film festival awards. There's a second chance to see it -  on Sunday November 26th at 3pm at the Casa and hosted by Liverpool Equity.

It is a subject very close to our hearts in Liverpool General branch as well as in the union nationally - we have campaigned for years for greater access to the profession for working class actors. Class inequality is endemic in the industry and it appears to be getting worse in some areas, such as film.

There will be a second screening plus a live Q&A with the film makers  Dierdre O'Neill and Mike Wayne  at the Casa later in the month. Liverpool & District General Branch hosts the matinee showing on Sunday November 26th at 3pm. Entry is £2. The film's running time is 70 mins.

The North West Labour Film Festival 2017 celebrates national and international cinema on the big screen from this Saturday 4th November through to Thursday 9th November in Liverpool. It promises quality entertainment with social awareness, offering a bright and sensitive look at the world of work. The festival is supported by the TUC and the trade union movement in the UK including the festival's main sponsors Unite and Unison.
