The cultural exception is non-negotiable !

Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

We send you a petition in our name and in the name of many other European film makers, in which we express our strong opposition to the exchanges liberalization in the audiovisual industry as part of the free-trade agreements between the United States and the European Union. We consider this negotiation mandate, such as it’s been established so far, totally unacceptable to the extent that it doesn’t exclude the audiovisual industry sector explicitly.

Signatories of this text have been the first to react and to express themselves. Lots of film makers are joining them.

The cultural future of our continent is being threatened: let’s act together against the cultural exception attacks !

Sincerely yours,

Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne.
