Political philosophers, ancient and modern, argue that the
cultural battle is as important as the political battle in
preserving a good society - and perhaps even more important in the
long run. Why then have conservatives long ceded one of the
most important cultural battlegrounds - Hollywood - to the
Left? Or have they?
Veteran screenwriter Steve Finefrock says that although
outnumbered, conservatives such as Cyrus Nowrasteh, writer of the
much discussed ABC film "Path to 9-11," have been successful in
Hollywood. Finefrock, who founded the Hollywood Conservative
Forum, will analyze how Hollywood really works and suggest how
conservatives from the Pacific Palisades to the Potomac can learn
to play the game - and move it to the Right.
[Steve Finefrock is in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the
American Film Renaissance, which will run from September 26-29 in
four venues in the Washington, D.C. area.]
