Event description

Description

One of the ways to make a major impact with your documentary is to get it on POV (Point of View) or American Reframed, both national, award winning non-fiction series' on PBS and its affiliated channels and on the web. What are the producers looking for? What should you be considering as you start production? And tips on what filmmakers should know about getting their films made, finished and out there.

Hear from Nicole Tsien, Co-Producer at POV and Carmen L. Vicencio, Supervising Producer at America Reframed.

POV (a cinema term for "point of view") is American television's longest-running showcase for independent nonfiction films. POV premieres 14–16 of the best, boldest, and most innovative programs every year on PBS. Since 1988, POV has presented over 400 films to public television audiences across the country. POV films are known for their intimacy, their unforgettable storytelling and their timeliness, putting a human face on contemporary social issues.

America ReFramed is a year-round documentary series that illuminates the changing contours of our ever-evolving nation. A co-production with the WORLD Channel, the series launched in 2012 to respond to the growing need for intimate and diverse stories that are domestically based. Viewers are immersed in personal stories that span the spectrum of American life, and are invited to reflect on topics as varied as healthcare, politics, gun violence, religion, and more. America ReFramed has won GRACIE, Christopher, Telly, and Cine Golden Eagle Awards, and received nominations for an EMMY, Independent Documentary Association, and Imagen Awards.

An Evening Seminar from Third World Newsreel and the Documentary Forum at CCNY at City College.
