  • SUPPORT ARTS FUNDING IN ALASKA AND GET FREE AD SPACE IN THE HERALD DE PARISmoose2

    JUNEAU (Herald de Paris) — The Alaskan Senate has moved forward with SB39, which would repeal the Alaskan Film Tax Incentives and severely hamper the Alaskan film industry, putting thousands of Alaskan professionals out of work. The bill now goes to the Alaska House of representatives. The Herald de Paris does not believe in putting hard working people out of work, nor do we feel that cuts in funding for the arts should ever occur. Government agencies should never cost their citizens jobs.
    .
    STOP THIS BILL.
    .
    Support MOOSE WINE, an Alaskan-based feature film currently in pre-production, and show the Alaska legislature that funding for the arts, and the promotion of jobs for its own citizens benefits everyone. Contact our marketing department at: MARKETING@HERALDDEPARIS.COM, and support MOOSE WINE, and The Herald de Paris will give you FREE advertising space in our daily, worldwide publication. Your support will go towards producing this film in Alaska, creating jobs for Alaskans, and proving that the Alaskan Senate is completely short-sighted in its understanding of how the Alaskan Film Tax Incentives are benefiting the State of Alaska.
    .
    DON’T LET STATE GOVERNMENT REPEAL ARTS FUNDING AND ARTS INCENTIVES.
