What ITVS Filmmakers Are Saying

"ITVS was the first and original supporter of Meet the Patels when we started this journey almost eight years ago. They believed in us when nobody else did, and continued to support us in the six years we spent making this thing, and again now during our nationwide release on PBS."

— Ravi Patel, director of Meet the Patels

“In (T)ERROR, we wanted to highlight a serious threat to the fabric of our democracy. ITVS’s generous support allowed us to have a strong platform to tell this story at a critical time in our country.”

— Lyric R. Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe, winners of the International Documentary Association’s 2015 Emerging Documentary Filmmaker Award
