West Virginia Public Library
Film Exhibition Policies- Draft

April 27, 2004

Given that the ALA Freedom to View Statement states the following - To
provide a diversity of viewpoints without the constraint of labeling or
prejudging film, video, or other audiovisual materials on the basis of
the moral, religious, or political beliefs of the producer or filmmaker
or on the basis of controversial content.
[ To read the entire Freedom to View statement visit the website -
http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/statementspols/ftvstatement/freedomviewstatement.htm.]

We believe in exhibiting films that represent a wide diversity of
viewpoints. All films will be judged on their quality and timeliness
concerning contemporary issues.

The only films we automatically reject are those that attack particular
ethnic, religious, and other groups, and support violence against these
groups.

Films that may not be deemed acceptable for exhibition can be donated to
the collection for loan to patrons. Films that attack particular ethnic,
religious, and other groups, and support violence against these groups
will not be judged suitable for the collection.

The director, in consultation with the board and community groups, will
be the final arbiter of what films will be exhibited and included in the
collection.

If any community member wishes to challenge the director’s decision, he
may file a petition and present it to an open meeting of the board.
