We gather filmmakers and producers from different European countries who worked in the making of some of the films competing for the 2021 edition of the Healthy Workplaces Film Award. This will be a time to exchange practices and understand how different cultural and labour policies across Europe affect the ways films are made and the lives of those making them.
