For nearly 20 years, The Independent Television Service (ITVS) has supported independently-produced programming for public television broadcast, focused on high-quality, challenging and though-provoking work that serves underrepresented communities. ITVS’ Diversity Development Fund is now accepting applications through November 12.
The DDF “provides up to $15,000 in research and development funding to producers of color to develop single documentary programs for public television.” Only half-hour or hour long programs are typically considered, not feature-lengths or series. Projects cannot have begun production.
Filmmakers should review their website for more information about the kinds of projects that they support, but these include CITY OF BORDERS, PROJECT KASHMIR, and OUR DISAPPEARED.
