Another great festival update.  Day Labor will be screening at the DC Labor Film Festival in our nation’s capitol on the weekend of October 9-12.  The 8th annual DC Labor festival highlights films dealing with workers and the workplace…what a great fit!

More festival notifications are due in the next two weeks, so hopefully we’ll have some more good news.

Oh, and I sent off the obligatory entries to Sundance and Slamdance.  It’s like buying a lottery ticket…
