COMBINED! Massive illness, disability & suffering National cost of $21 billion a year Aust Inst of Health & Welfare 2002 Smoking and children:  Smoking and children In Australia (2002)… 14% of secondary students (205,000) smoked at least weekly 25% of 17-year-olds smoked at least weekly 90% of all adult smokers start smoking as children Kids can move quickly from experimentation to regular smoking and addiction The tobacco industry plan:  The tobacco industry plan Targeting children “23% of the population is 15 years of age and under. 17% is 16-24... Given predisposition to try/adopt new brands,this segment represents significant market opportunity... Overall objective: Position Marlboro as a ‘cult’ brand – to attract new smokers.” Marlboro marketing strategy in Australia, 1990 Using films “Most of the strong, positive images for cigarettes and smoking are created by cinema and television. We have seen the heroes smoking in ‘Wall St’, ‘Crocodile Dundee’ and ‘Roger Rabbit’. Mickey Rourke, Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn are forever seen, both on and off the screen, with a lighted cigarette... If branded cigarette advertising is to take full advantage of these images, it has to do more than simply achieve package recognition – it has to feed off and exploit the image source.” Philip Morris market research study, 1989 Evidence of encouragement:  Evidence of encouragement Seeing smoking in films encourages children to smoke. The evidence: Adolescents exposed to film smoking are almost 3 times more likely to smoke Dalton et al, 2003, The Lancet Non-smoking teens whose favourite stars smoke on screen 16 times more likely to view smoking favourably Tickle et al, 2001, Tobacco Control Several other studies Film smoking: on the rise:  Film smoking: on the rise Despite the “end” of official tobacco promotion around 1990… More smoking in films in 2000 than in the 60s – 9 out of 10 Hollywood films Kacirk & Glantz, Tobacco Control, 2001 Smoking in popular youth-oriented films up 50% since 1998 – 82% contain smoking, 83% of these associate tobacco with positive attributes Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group, 2002 Philip Morris for an Oscar?:  Philip Morris for an Oscar?

Oz-screened films:  Oz-screened films In the 13 top-grossing teen-popular films of 1999/2000: 62% had at least one tobacco scene; average 4 scenes per film A high % of visual smoking incidents connected tobacco with at least one plus (enjoyment, attractiveness, glamour, power etc.) Few showed smoking as unappealing, unattractive or unacceptable Clarkson/Watson/Donovan/Giles-Corti, Uni of WA (2002, unpublished) Who profits from the youth SmokeScreen?:  Who profits from the youth SmokeScreen?

Mandatory counter-advertising campaign require anti-tobacco counter-ads to be played before every screening of youth-rated films depicting smoking Statement by film-makers in credits, saying no-one has accepted tobacco inducements Support tougher legislation prohibition on tobacco ads (TAP Act) should include clearer ban on inducements to promote smoking or tobacco products excessive smoking could attract tougher classification Reduce smoking content at source writers, producers, directors – refuse tobacco inducements; think creatively about alternatives to smoking scenes, brand ID Counter-ads can help:  Counter-ads can help US study of 800 9th-graders showed: Running an anti-smoking ad before a film showing smoking has “immunising” effect against glamourisation Schoolkids seeing the anti-ads maintain their negative reactions to underage smoking Pechman/Shih, Uni of California 1997 Who cares?:  Who cares?
