Open Call Funding Application Goes Digital

Posted on June 15, 2011

As ITVS moves into its 20th year, the organization's largest funding initiative, Open Call, is making the switch to digital. Starting this summer, all materials must be submitted online, including video.


What are the benefits of doing this? 

• Faster and more streamlined communication with ITVS staff. 

• Ability to track the progress of your project online. 

• Promotes sustainable practices by saving reams of paper, and greatly reducing the carbon-footprint of ITVS and the indie documentary community. 

• Significant cost savings with the elimination of postage and overnight mailing fees, as well as printing, dubbing, and other expenses.

The application system will be live by June 24. Some submission requirements have changed, so please go to our funding page to review the Open Call application material requirements. If you want to get in touch with the Programming Department directly, you'll find contact info on the web. We're hope you're as excited about this as we are! Let us know your thoughts on Facebook.
