Petition to Tribeca Film Festival

Tribeca Film Festival, Apologize to Ukrainians & Deprive "Phone Duty" Of The Award

In April 2018 Tribeca Film Festival became a supporter of Russian terrorism by giving Phone Duty, a Russian movie, the Best Narrative Short award. Phone Duty tells a story from the perspective of Russian terrorists located in Donbas, a Ukrainian territory occupied by Russia. The starring actor, Zakhar Prilepin, is a terrorist himself. He is an infamous Russian writer well known for his imperialistic and xenophobic views. Prilepin is a terrorist who moved to Donbas and fights against Ukrainian Army. He claims openly that the ultimate goal of Russians in Donbas is to advance and occupy the entire Ukraine.   Our Demands We the undersigned demand from Tribeca Film Festival to: - Denounce Phone Duty as the winner of the Best Narrative Short award. It's a piece of pro-Russian propaganda, and a real Russian terrorist stars in it. - Remove the phrase "Donbass rebel fighter" from the movie synopsis on the Festival's website. "Russian terrorist" would be a more appropriate wording. - Publicly apologize for hurting the feelings of all Ukrainians, who've lost their loved ones as a result of Russia's military intervention into Ukraine. *****Follow this campaign on the petition's website!Read this petition in Ukrainian / Текст петиції українською                           Can you chip in $3 to get this petition on the agenda?Within an hour, this petition could have thousands more supporters if everyone chipped in the price of a coffee. Yes, I'll chip in $3 or moreNo, I'll share instead

Petition to The Walt Disney Company, Give forgotten Disney more love, Walt Disney

Give Forgotten Disney more love

#ForgottenDisney Projectweareone.tumblr.com I am a fan of Disney, old and new, all the way from Walt to Iger. My favorite era is probably the Disney Renaissance to the early 2000s. During that time it felt like Disney was united, and cared about their current and classic things.  I think all Disney movies and shows should be acknowledged and given attention and merchandise no matter how it did finically or critically. So old, new,forgotten, and loved, all come together. And any new films that come out (E.g. The Jungle Book, The BFG,Queen of Katwe) won't ever be forgotten. They'll be loved and given merchandise forever. Part of this is also acknowledging sequels and forgotten films. They should all be marketed, given merchandise, and shown love. This way old and new Disney can be together.  The Forgotten Disney list This includes but not limited to: All movies theatrical and direct to dvd,All Disney Channel, DisneyXD, ABC,Freeform (ABCfamily), Playhouse Disney\Disney Junior other Disney owned network shows, Television Movies (Including Disney Channel original movies, and Wonderful world of Disney films)    The second part is specifically for marketing. We think marketing for the movies should focus on their important lessons. Some examples: The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride- We Are One Cool Runnings- No matter what anyone says follow your dreams and work hard. Rise above it. 102 Dalmatians- Being different isn't bad, you can be a hero. The Color of Friendship- Equality and anti racism.  Kronk's New Groove-Be True To Your Groove   We understand it's not possible for everything requested to happen, but we still hope Forgotten Disney can at least have more love.

Petition to The Walt Disney Company

Demand Disney-Pixar Lose John Lasseter #LoseLasseter

John Lasseter is one of the co-founders of Pixar, and has worked as Disney-Pixar's CCO for many years. He has also worked as Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering. Despite his contributions, Lasseter does not belong at Disney-Pixar in any way. Both The Washington Post and The Hollywood Reporter have reported numerous sexual harassment claims, which include allegations of "grabbing, kissing, [and] making comments about physical attributes" towards employees of Disney-Pixar. You can also read additional coverage of these incidents in Variety, Vanity Fair, WSJ, and the LA Times. Since Lasseter's six-month "sabbatical" Disney-Pixar leadership is debating allowing him to return. We are firmly asking the company to never allow Lasseter to continue working with them. If Lasseter is allowed to return, it is not only an insult to the current contributions of hundreds of employees that contribute more to the company's success, but also will demonstrate that such behavior will be tolerated by Disney-Pixar. Lasseter's return would be a direct dismissal of those he has hurt, and his continued presence would contribute to an unsafe environment of mistrust. His presence will also affect the company by causing many talented individuals who have been affected to seek taking their skills elsewhere, potentially rival companies. All of this can be prevented by Disney-Pixar upper management agreeing not to allow Lasseter back into the company. Disney-Pixar is being presented with an exceptional opportunity to re-examine company culture, and make fundamental changes that will enable employees to do better work. As a company that prides itself on progress, it would be in line with Disney-Pixar values to not allow Lasseter's return. Preventing Lasseter from returning would be a very public victory for the animation community and demonstrate the values we expect from our leadership. Please stand with us and tell Disney-Pixar you never want to see John Lasseter working with them again. Thank you!
