Italian cinema threatens strike if tax credit reduced


Rome, July 3 - Italian film makers say that a
government plan to cut by half certain tax credits that
encourage national cinema is wrong-headed and destructive.
And if needed, film industry workers will go on strike to
press their cause and protect the 2,500 jobs at stake, members
said Wednesday.
"They must understand that our response will be tough,"
warned director Giovanni Veronesi following an industry meeting
Wednesday morning.
The industry is concerned over a government plan to cut a
tax credit to as little as 45 million euro from the present 90
million euro, effective in 2014.
"All the cinema (players) are united in this," opposition
effort, said Riccardo Tozzi, president Anica, the association
representing the cinema and audiovisual industry in Italy.
"We are again in the situation of struggling against cuts,
and this time it is particularly stunning," as some government
members have promised there would be no further cuts to culture,
he added.
