With the publication of Agnes Varnum's article about the MOFTB's film permit rules, today indieWIRE is officially launching a new Advocacy section. Filmmakers have bemoaned the loss of organizations like AIVF that once made advocacy on important issues a top priority. Working with writers like Agnes we hope that this new section will contribute to keeping some of today's most pressing topics front and center. Please send along any comments, suggestions or ideas for the section. Thanks.
