Kartemquin's Pat Aufderheide and Tim Horsburgh will be on a Silverdocs panel related to the successful PBSNeedsIndies campaign.


"What happens to the docs you loved at Silverdocs? Many of them end up hiding in plain sight on public TV. But hide no longer: PBS has recently revealed plans to spotlight and celebrate two series that air docs almost every week – POV and Independent Lens. Get the story on how filmmakers and viewers are key to PBS’ having more quality doc fare on TV.
