You have an exceptional story to tell and deserve the best partner to help set the stage for engaging communities via public media. We are here to support your vision and reach that pinnacle. The ITVS Independents Summit will elevate our shared values and be the place for you, ITVS staff, and industry partners to plant a flag and stake a claim for excellence in public broadcasting.
We'll come together to discuss the issues of the day, celebrate untold stories, and guarantee the future sustainability of non-commercial, but nonetheless competitive, media making.
We are excited to announce the visionary filmmakers who will be attending this winter's ITVS Independents Summit.
Over several days, attendees will join workshops focusing on what it means to be an independent filmmaker working with public television. They'll make connections with a diverse community of other independents currently working on projects of their own. Attendees will also engage in conversations with other filmmakers and ITVS about issues and trends currently impacting the independent documentary production and distribution landscape. We will also discuss the best practices for production, distribution, marketing, and engagement.
