Five ITVS programs stand to win an Emmy tonight at the Lincoln Center in New York for the 31st Annual News and Documentary Awards. Among the nominees are three Independent Lens programs — Tulia, Texas; No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo and Vilmos; and Crips and Bloods: Made in America. Two Emmy nominations also went to the ITVS programs The Way We Get By and The English Surgeon, both of which aired last year on P.O.V.The Way We Get By received funding from LINCS, while The English Surgeon was supported by ITVS’s International Call (the next deadline for which has been pushed up to December 10, 2010 — don’t forget!). Independent Lens Series Producer and ITVS Vice President Lois Vossen will be on hand at the ceremony tonight in New York. Good luck to all!
