"Submission" Pulled From Film Festival

Via The Adventuress

The producers of "Submission", a film about Islam by the murdered Dutch movie director Theo van Gogh, have cancelled plans to show the film at this week's Rotterdam film festival due to security fears, organisers said.

I'm not entirely sure I agree with the adventuress on this. There may be real security concerns over the showing at the festival which it would be irresponsible of the producers to ignore. They need to get the film back up on the web, or sell the rights to someone who is willing to take the risks.

Any Dutch speakers fancy approaching them?
