The First Tenet of the Cinema-Libre:
To the Cinema-Libre Filmmaker, money does not exist. Cinema-Libre is an expression of pure creativity, free of fears of profitability and commerciality. All filmmakers and films working under the Cinema-Libre Code should recognize the divine state of being and that state's innate ability to create everything from nothing. In this creator's image, all skills, materials, talent, lighting elements, design elements, production equipment and other tools must be native to the artists, borrowed from friends or liberated. Manual labor and other working as a bartering tool is strongly encouraged as the Cinema-Libre Filmmaker is expected to be of service.
The Second Tenet of the Cinema-Libre:
All films created under the Cinema-Libre Code must be as positive as possible in nature, with the heroes representing loving-kindness and the beauty, truth, and difficulty natural to the state of the human condition. They should further teach tested and real techniques to the audience for the liberation from worldly suffering, as best understood by the filmmakers, including: meditation, presence, communion, forgiveness, sobriety, surrender, self-actualization and finding inner peace, calm, and joy.
The Third Tenet of the Cinema-Libre:
All Cinema-Libre Filmmakers should, whenever possible, use the tenets expressed by Cinéma-Vérité Filmmakers, combining both ideals to create the Cinema of Truth and Freedom.
