ITVS Introduces Beverly to the PBS Short Film Fest

Posted on March 15, 2012

ITVS is thrilled that the Women and Girls Lead profile "Meet Beverly" has been selected as one of five short films with the theme of "Girl Power" in the inaugural PBS Online Short Film Festival. 

Last month, Beverly Kearney was honored as a part of BET's "What Extraordinary Looks Like" awards along with Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, and Spike Lee. Although she is not a household name, once you hear her story, it's obvious why she deserves to be recognized with these other cultural icons. If you don't already know her, now is your opportunity to meet Beverly Kearney, the decorated women's track and field coach from the University of Austin Texas. Beverly is profiled as one of many women in a new web series for the Women and Girls Lead campaign. 

This series is produced by independent filmmakers Betsy and Carl Crum (producers of the acclaimed web series One Square Mile) in collaboration with local public television stations throughout the United States and will feature inspiring stories of women and girls in local communities. The first batch takes us to Austin, Texas, where Betsy and Carl worked in partnership with public television station, KLRU. Please take a minute to watch Beverly's story and don't forget to vote for her video for the Audience Award by "liking" the video here or here.
