ITVS and NBPC Present a Social Screening of Have You Heard from Johannesburg

Posted on January 12, 2012

A special online-only screening of the film’s first installment will take place here at 1pm PT/4pm ET on Friday, January 13. Filmmaker Connie Field’s five-part series on the history of the global anti-apartheid movement premiered Thursday on Independent Lens.


ITVS and the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) are thrilled to welcome viewers to an interactive screening of Have You Heard from Johannesburg. Held exclusively online, participants have the ability to sign in through Facebook (or directly on the site) and engage with each other in real time, while screening the film.

The format is inherently social. Viewers can comment, ask questions, take polls, and even express their feelings about what they’re watching through a variety of emoticons on the site. This is an entirely new way of consuming content and all of us are looking forward to hearing feedback from YOU the viewers. So let us know! Looking forward to seeing you this Friday at 1pm PT/4pm ET for a freewheeling conversation on filmmaker Connie Field’s landmark documentary Have You Heard from Johannesburg
