As community radio experiments more with video, a major public media outlet’s online film fest offers ideas for your community’s media makers.
One of the more interesting new intersections of public media and filmmaking is the PBS Online Film Festival. You can stream the films right now.
Among the films being voted on is the short Teachers, supported by the National Black Programming Consortium. According to its website, “Founded in 1979, the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) develops, produces and funds media content about the Black experience for public media outlets, including television, digital radio and online.”
Winners to be announced shortly.
