Dear Skadi,

in Austria, the Forum für österreichische Filmfestivals http://www.film-festivals.at/ has conducted surveys about the impact of filmfestivals and has enabled lobbying for funding. 

All my best,

Betreff: [Filmfestivalresearch] Input request on working conditions at film festivals

Dear festival researchers and festival organizers,

I have a quick question for you.  In preparation for an event put on by the newly formed union group for festival workers in Germany (Festivalarbeit: https://festivalarbeit.wordpress.com/)  I am looking for input on the topic of festival labor and working conditions in other countries.  Do you know of any debates of labor issues, strikes, etc that you could point me to and share info about the specific arguments?  Also, do you know of any best-practice examples to look to?  Anything labor related, like contracts, payment, working hours, free labor, family-friendly work arrangements, benefits, etc is of interest.  Any hints are much appreciated.
