International Week of Action for Smoke-Free Movies

The International Week of Action for Smoke-Free Movies occurs every year leading up to the Academy Awards telecast in late February and is used by a number of organizations across the world to raise awareness about the issue of smoking in movies and its negative impacts on young people.
