A panel discussed the cultural and legal implications of “film sanitizing.” The focus was on a new documentary about censorship and artistic freedom, titled BLEEP!  Censoring Hollywood?. The film examined the controversy and legality surrounding the practice of editing or filtering DVD versions of popular films in order to block out potentially questionable content for viewers. This “film sanitizing” technique had prompted the Family Movie Act, under consideration in Congress, which would allow companies to edit video material for content as well as limit legal actions that could be taken against the editing and distribution companies. The film was produced by ABC News Productions for AMC and scheduled to premiere on AMC on April 26, 2005. Following their remarks they answered questions from the audience. close
