Score A Pass to Powerful MIFF Doco Shining a Light on Gig Workers


The Gig is Up is a feature doco screening online through Melbourne International Film Festival – and we have passes to give away! If you’re already a paid-up Megaphone Journal subscriber, you’re automatically in the draw – and if you’re not, drop us a donation by the end of Wednesday and you can be too. 

Described as “A very human tech doc”, The Gig is Up uncovers the real costs of the platform economy encompassing the likes of Uber, Amazon and Deliveroo. The gig economy is worth over 5 trillion USD globally, and this doco explores the hidden stories of the people in this shadow workforce.
