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 $5 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.

Owen Wilson Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

I am starting a Petition for Owen Wilson to obtain a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Owen Wilson has a long career in the film industry. His career started with a film called Bottle Rocket in which he co-stars with actor and actual brother Luke Wilson. Owen co-written the movie with Director  Wes Anderson of which has many talents too.  He then went on to movies such as The Royal Tenenbaums and it was nominated for an Academy Award for  Best Original Screenplay. After his career went on he starred in the blockbuster Shanghai Noon with co-star actor and martial artist Jackie Chan. Following the success of the first movie, a second was made called Shanghai Knights. It was a hit too. After that in 2005 he starred along side co star Vince Vaughn in the comedy Wedding Crashers which was a hit at the box office. His movie career kept getting more diverse with movies like Marley and Me, Midnight in Paris and No Escape. He also voiced the favorite Lightning Mcqueen in not only one but three movies in Cars, Cars 2 and Cars 3. After that, in 2017 he starred in the movie Wonder with veteran actress Julia Roberts in which he plays the dad of a boy named Auggie which is played by actor Jacob Tremblay. It is a very inspiring story. He proves that he can play any character he sets his mind to. He is a wonderful all around person and a member of many charities. Therefore, the one and only Owen Wilson deserves a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame! Written by Ann

Petition to Danny Boyle, Universal Pictures, Working Title Films, Congress

Danny Boyle STOLE My Movie -- #StopYesterdayToday'!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43lnBKCGnYQ&feature=youtu.be Hello. My name is Ryan Wagner and I am a humble, innocent filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. For the past two years I -- along with my partner Benjamin Montez -- have worked tirelessly to write, direct, and produce an incredibly personal feature film, one that was supposed to jumpstart my career. The movie is a real tear-jerker that even my father (who can be very tough on me) said was good. We landed a development deal at 'Working Title Films' and were supposed to receive distribution through 'Universal Pictures'.  Over the past few weeks we have been preparing to release our movie, so imagine my surprise when I logged online to see that DANNY BOYLE STOLE THE IDEA TO MY MOVIE.  The 'Working Title' led picture called Yesterday is a complete and total ripoff of my film, Accidentally in Love. I suspect that Danny Boyle stole the script by logging onto my computer and sending it to himself-- this would not be that hard as I am constantly forgetting my laptop at various Starbucks across the greater Los Angeles area. It hurts, to have something so personal ripped out from inside my heart and smeared on every movie theater screen in America, but I will not stand idly by as Danny Boyle continues to steal my ideas. I demand acknowledgment from Danny Boyle, 'Working Title Films', and 'Universal Pictures' that the idea to Yesterday was originally mine. I heard that Hollywood had dirtbags, but I had no idea that they could reach the level of Danny Boyle. I know sometimes people make mistakes (in my heart, I believe that my father means well) but this is not one of those times. This calls for action. Please, I beg of you from the bottom of my heart, share this petition with everyone you know and #StopYesterdayToday.
