With appropriations from the Florida legislature from 1956 to 1965, FLIC investigators interrogated students, faculty, and staff at four public universities in Florida who they deemed a threat to their McCarthy-like versions of democracy and morality.
The first FLIC, Content Capital, will choose from among the rough cuts of productions submitted by independent filmmakers and decide which film to fund from there.
But after a recent ATO pronouncement that it was targeting investors in film schemes designed purely to evade taxes, FLICs raised only $2 million of the combined $13 million they'd hoped for before the June 30 end of Oz's fiscal year.
