Preserving The Right To Film In NYC links

As reported a few days ago by Anthony Kaufman, NYC adopting rules that would require "permits and insurance for any group of two or more people using a handheld camera in one location for more than thirty minutes" (NYCLU) is definitely bad news for indie/DIY/low budget or student filmmakers as well as tourists & anyone else who wants to take photos or shoot video in NYC and this might also be bad news for indie filmmakers who live in other cities; because I can see other cities adopting or wanting to adopt the NYC rules in the name of "security" or whatever other equally bad for film creativity & individual rights reasons they can come up with.

Here are links to a couple of groups who are working to stop that unfortunate future:

- New York Civil Liberties Union document "City Agrees To Reopen Debate On Film Permit Regulations", with links to:
" Click here to read the Fact Sheet on Film Permitting Scheme Comment Period (PDF)
Click here to read the City's proposed rules (PDF)
Click here to read the NYCLU's comments (PDF)"

- Project Film/Photo in NYC at Not An Alternative

And here's the contact info. for the NYC Mayor's Office of Film if you want to voice your opinion re: the proposed rules (info. is from Kaufman's post):

Julianne Cho
Associate Commissioner
