Posted on August 5, 2009
Interested in film funding? ITVS funds, distributes and promotes new programs primarily for public television. We work with independent producers to create and present programs that take creative risks, advance issues and represent points of view not usually seen on public or commercial television. The Diversity Development Fund provides up to $15,000 in research and development funding to producers of color to develop single documentary programs for public television. Projects should reach underserved audiences often overlooked by conventional programming. Projects must be in the research or development phase, and cannot have begun production. Producers must be U.S. citizens or legal residents. The deadline for the Diversity Development Fund is Friday, September 25. Due dates are not postmark deadlines and all materials must arrive at ITVS by 5:00 PM.
