IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED PRIOR TO MAY 13, 2011
We need everyone with any connection to filmmaking to send a letter or an email to Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.Â Â The House and Senate have approved a budget which continues funding for the Missouri Film Office.Â Â Now the budget will go to the governor to be signed into law.
It isÂ ESSENTIAL that the governor hear from all as many people as possible
before May 13!
We do not want form letters.Â Â Start out with one or two sentences telling the governor how you are connected to the film community (even if you just love to watch locally produced films).Â Â Then urge the governor to support the Missouri film industry and to sign House Bill 7.Â Â Tell him that it is very important to you that he NOTÂ veto the legislation orÂ withhold the funds approved by the legislatureÂ Â We can save the Missouri Film Office, but itâ€™s now or never. Â PLEASE EMAIL AND SEND A COPY OF YOUR LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE VIA MAIL – PLEASE DO BOTH!
