    As public media’s leading incubator and presenter of independent film, ITVS is driven by the conviction that bold storytelling builds a more just society. When you partner with us, we back your vision.
    We know the risks you take to tell a story that no one else is telling. We’ll make it easier on you, providing you with one-on-one support on every step of your filmmaking journey. You'll draw upon our decades of industry expertise, working with our creative and technical strategists, marketing champions, and audience engagement innovators.
    At ITVS, we connect you to global audiences and communities that are using film to change lives.
    We’re committed to diversity on both sides of the camera. For over 25 years, we’ve been creating films that are reflective of our society. Two-thirds of our filmmakers, and more than half our staff, are people of color. Half the films we foster are by and about women.
    We believe in you, and we’re in your corner.

    OUR MISSION STATEMENT
    ITVS brings independently-produced, high-quality public broadcast and new media programs to local, national, and international audiences. The independent producers who create ITVS programs take creative risks, tackle complex issues, and express points of view seldom explored in the mass media. ITVS programs enrich the cultural landscape with the voices and visions of underrepresented communities, and reflect the interests and concerns of a diverse society. Show less
