AMMAN - Scores of international film industry figures have joined Syrian movie makers in signing a declaration denouncing the violent repression of pro-democracy demonstrators.

"Peaceful Syrian citizens are being killed today for their demands of basic rights and liberties," said the declaration, which was published this week on Facebook.

"We call on all filmmakers in the world to contribute to stopping the killing by ... announcing their solidarity with the Syrian people and with their dreams of justice, equality and freedom," the document said.

It was was signed by Costa-Gavras from Greece, French-Swiss director Jean-Luc Godard, US writer Howard Rodman and French actors Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche, among hundreds from Europe, the United States and the Middle East
