ITVS Indies Showcase Celebrates 20 Years of Independents

Posted on July 22, 2011

In celebration of ITVS's 20th Anniversary, the organization will stream 20 groundbreaking documentaries from July 25 to September 23, as a part of the ITVS Indies Showcase.


The Independent Television Service is turning 20. To celebrate, we're launching the ITVS Indies Showcase, a free online film festival featuring a succession of 20 unforgettable documentaries July 25 to September 23. We're fortunate to be able to honor the extraordinary contributions of independent filmmakers to public television. 

Each full-length program will stream free for three days as part of ITVS Indies Showcase, where viewers will also find a timeline of ITVS's history, film trailers, clips, interviews, an audience award contest, and more. The ITVS Indies Showcase line-up represents a sample of the 1,000-plus productions ITVS has supported as the country's leading provider of independent films for public broadcasting. Tune in next week as films will start streaming on Monday, July 25!
