Reclaiming the Power of Public Media
In this moment of increasing monopolization by commercial networks and distributors, what lessons can today’s filmmakers learn from the economic, political, and social conditions that brought about public media in the 1960s and ITVS in the 1980s? This panel will bring together filmmakers and public media professionals across generations to consider the enduring history of public media and think imaginatively about how to work together to double down on its future—a future that hinges on Americans’ faith in the very notion of a public commons.
