Dear Cultural Policy makers,

    Two days ago the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh announced that it would
eliminate the entire Film and Video Department as a budget cut.   (for
additional information....http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/20030109judson3.asp 
http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/20030108carnegie1.asp )

    This is very unacceptable and irresponsible cultural policy on the part
of this institution.    It could have very dire consequences on the entire
field.  

    For those of you not familiar with the independent film exhibition
community, the program at the Carnegie was a primiere model looked to and
followed by many within the United States and in other parts of the globe.  

    Imagine if your board decided to eliminate your whole program.   Act.   
Please speak out!   Request that the Carnegie Museums reconsider their
position.

    The elimination of one, means the elimination of us all.

                Sincerely,   Ariel Dougherty
