Tax dollars support sickness masquerading as art at Sundance Film Festival
Contact Your U.S. Senators and Representative Today!


Recently I sent you information on two films featured at the Sundance Film Festival. One, "Hounddog," featured a scene where a 12-year-old girl was raped. The other film, "Zoo," was about a man having sex with a horse. AFA has learned that your tax dollars were used to support the Sundance Film Festival. The National Endowment for the Arts gave between $100,000 and $249,000 to help underwrite the festival, and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) gave between $50,000 and $99,999. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) gets millions of dollars to support "art." A few years ago the NEA helped fund a crucifix submerged in urine and named "Pis- Christ." NEA has sponsored similar "art" projects with tax dollars. PBS gets tax funding from The Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Every other non-profit broadcasting station must raise their own funds, but CPB and PBS are funded with hundreds of millions of tax dollars. PBS is probably the most liberal network in America. Hollywood has hundreds of millions of dollars to underwrite the cost of the Sundance Film Festival, but they would rather use your tax dollars than their own money. Together, these two organizations provided upwards of $350,000 of tax money to the film festival. The arts community annually gets over a billion dollars from private sources to finance their art. Yet they still go to Congress to ask for receive, millions of tax dollars. And the receive it. What did the taxpayer get for his money?

Take Action

Send emails to your two U.S. Senators and Representative concerning this issue. Ask your Senators and Representatives to stop providing tax dollars to support the National Endowment for the Arts and PBS. Let these two organizations be funded with public donations, not tax dollars.
