Hosted by PBS, ITVS, POV, Independent Lens, WNET and the Indie Caucus
Join PBS, POV, ITVS, WNET, Independent Lens, and the Indie Caucus in New York City for the next stop on the National Listening Tour for Independent Films on PBS. This event will take place February 23, 2015, from 2 PM ET to 5 PM ET at the SVA Theatre in Manhattan. Please RSVP here.
In keeping with this commitment to independent filmmakers, PBS leadership is hosting a series of open forums around the country with independent filmmakers, PBS series producers, and other public media and community partners. At each event, participants are invited to voice their priorities and innovative ideas on how we all can work together to strengthen distribution, viewership and community engagement through Independent Lens, POV and other independent films.
Independent storytelling by and about underrepresented voices in American media is a core part of public television. Sharing diverse perspectives is not what sets public media apart, it is what PBS stations are mandated to do as part of their commitment to serve communities. Join us in securing a home for independent films and provide a voice to the diverse filmmaking community across the United States.
Watch highlights from San Francisco, the first stop on the listening tour last month. The Indie Caucus and Kartemquin Films will host a third stop in Chicago, date to be determined.
