Kartemquin Films invites you to join POV for the final screening of prototypes created POV Hackathon at 9 on Sunday, August 16, at 7 p.m. You can RSVP to the event here . A limited number of seats are available for this screening. POV Hackathon is a weekend laboratory that since 2012 has provided matchmaking and mentorship for visionary nonfiction media makers and inventive technologists as they create prototypes that re-invent the documentary for the web. POV Hackathon has had a 100% prototype production rate, and teams have often continued to work together, premiering finished products at high-profile events such as the Tribeca Film Festival and the New York Film Festival, while other teams have attracted new funding, from organizations such as the Knight Foundation. Fast Company recently called POV Hackathon one of the year's "most anticipated events."

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!
