D.C. and Hollywood:BFF?

From Serious Popcorn, the blog of media critic Martha Bayles, comes a discussion of a recent forum for Congressional and federal agency staff hosted by Vanderbilt’s Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy in D.C. on the export of American films and the tight relationship between Hollywood and Washington that facilitates it. Bayles’ post ran as an  op-ed in the Boston Globe and is a version of a chapter that will be part of her upcoming book, “The Washington-Hollywood Pact.” Very interesting discussion of the role the federal government plays in the global reach of American films, and calls out Curb Center director Bill Ivey’s take on it from his new book, “Arts, Inc.: How Greed and Neglect Have Destroyed Our Cultural Rights.” Take a look.
