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
