FilmHawaii Seminar on Film Labor Unions


This roundtable discussion will provide an informal overview of film-related labor unions such as the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and I.A.T.S.E. (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees). Local filmmakers can expect to learn the purpose of these unions, what kinds of agreements are available to low-budget independent productions, how to become a union member, how to become a union signatory, and how to work with the local branches of these unions.
