Stand with Independents on PBS

We encourage all of our fans to watch the new season of Independent Lens on Mondays at 10pm on PBS. The series begins October 8th with As Goes Janesville.

Earlier this year, the successful PBS Needs Indies campaign saw filmmakers and fans unite in support of independent documentary on PBS, urging them to reconsider scheduling and promotion for Independent Lens and P.O.V. You made this new timeslot happen, so we hope you can spread the word about it!

Films to be screened include Nanook of the North, Don’t Look Back, The Thin Blue Line, and Kartemquin's very own Hoop Dreams.
