The FTAC Support-O-Meter
“Measuring the pulse of the
American Film and Television Worker”

Film & Television

Number of Film & Television professionals who Support FTAC’s 301a petition.

Our numbers are growing each minute! The FTAC 301a petition asks the U.S. government to level the playing field with the use of the section 301. This is the same trade remedy that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has endorsed and is currently using to fight the battle over piracy. Implementing this trade remedy will terminate the 19 subsidy programs, and finally put an end to a trend that threatens the job security of film workers and small businesses throughout the world.
