17 to 23 March 2016: Seven documentaries on the future of work, each followed by a panel discussion
Visit of Federal Minister Andrea Nahles postponed to 18 March
The nationwide touring film festival "Futurale - Arbeiten 4.0", initiated by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, will be a guest from 17 to 23 March 2016 in Frankfurt am Main: Seven documentaries on the subject of the future of labour will be shown in the Kommunales Kino of the Volkshochschule Filmforum Höchst, each followed by a panel discussion. The films inform about current and future trends in the world of work - from 3D printing and digital nomads to robotics in nursing care for the elderly. Experts from the region will discuss the risks and opportunities offered by an increasingly digitised working environment with the audience in the cinema auditorium.
In the opening film DEINE ARBEIT, DEIN LEBEN (YOUR WORK, YOUR LIFE), employees describe their everyday working life in the form of a video diary, PLEASE SUBSCRIBE treats the Youtube phenomenon as a workplace, ICH BIN ALICE presents the attempts to counter the shortage of skilled workers in nursing care for the elderly with robots, DIGITALE NOMADEN shows the seductive combination of travel and work, PRINT THE LEGEND tells of the revolution through 3-D printing, SILICON WADI documents the impressive startup scene in Israel and MY WONDERABLE WORKSHOP demonstrates the challenges of anti-hierarchical corporate management. 21 expert representatives from business, trade unions, politics, the church, social work, science and the media from the Rhine-Main region will share their views on the new working conditions with the audience.
School screenings are offered for selected films.
