The Santa Fe Film Office backs a zero-tolerance policy regarding sexual harassment, intimidation, illegal or unfair business practices including “kick-backs,” payment skimming, forced contracting and other undue influence peddling, collusion and racketeering within the film and television industry – or any industry for that matter. Legitimate professionals don’t engage in these practices. We support those individuals, businesses and other entities that resist such activities and, when warranted, report them to and pursue action through the appropriate entities including oversight and regulatory agencies, law enforcement, the courts, etc.
Accordingly, the SFFO rocks the “#YoTambien” initiative to encourage reporting, resisting and eradicating these activities where they exist. While the SFFO has no formal authority to prosecute or legally sanction these activities, we strongly encourage such through the appropriate channels. Below are some connections to advocacy, oversight and law enforcement agencies should you, your business or other interested parties wish to file a report or pursue legal action. Some of them allow anonymous reporting if that is your preferred course of action; all respect your confidentiality. You are most definitely not alone. And you have some very powerful friends.
