NOTE: "Banned in Boston!" was a popular phrase about censorship of movies and books in Puritanical Boston into the 20th Century. Looks like Nixed in New York is the new version. Fortunately, we have a solution. See below. Congratulations to the VAXXED team.

From the VAXXED website: To our dismay, we learned on March 26 about the Tribeca Film Festival's decision to reverse the official selection of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.
It is important to note that this is not an anti-vaccine movie as it is has been commonly portrayed in the media. Robert De Niro's original defense of the film happened Friday after a one-hour conversation between De Niro and and Bill Posey, the congressman who has interacted directly and at length with the CDC Whistleblower (Dr. William Thompson) and whose team has scrutinized the documents that strongly indicate fraud at the CDC. That is what this film is about.
It is our understanding that persons from an organization affiliated with the festival have made unspecified allegations against the film - claims that we were given no opportunity to challenge or redress. We were denied due process.
We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art, and truth. Tribeca's action will not succeed in denying the world access to the truth behind the film Vaxxed.
We are grateful to the many thousands of people who have already mobilized including doctors, scientists, educators and the autistic community.
We will be pressing forward and sharing our plans in the very near future.
