PBS’s POV, public television’s premier showcase for independent, non-fiction film is seeking to support emerging filmmakers through its DIVERSE VOICES PROJECT, a co-production fund supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
To qualify for DVP support filmmakers cannot have a prior producing or directing credit on a nationally broadcast PBS program. (Lesser credits such as coordinating producer do not disqualify applicants.) All subjects, styles and lengths are welcome.
All submissions must be received by 5 PM, January 14, 2011. This is an arrival deadline, not a postmark deadline. Submissions received after January 14th shall be entered in the following submission cycle unless an extension is granted by POV.
