Latino Public Broadcasting Public Media Content Fund – Call for Proposals

Deadline: Monday, June 6, 2016 at 5 PM

All applications must be submitted online at www.pmcf.submittable.com/submit [2].

For the Public Media Content Fund Guidelines, please visit: http://lpbp.org/2014-public-media-content-fund-guidelines/ [3].

For Public Media Content Fund Guidelines FAQ’s, please visit: http://lpbp.org/funding-faq/ [4].

The Public Media Content Fund is an open invitation to independent producers to submit proposals for a program, limited series or short web-based digital video (no longer than 20 minutes, for distribution on PBS.org or another public media web platform) on any subject that relates to or is representative of Latino Americans that is appropriate for public television and/or one of its platforms. LPB funding will average between $5,000 and $100,000 for programs of most genres, including documentary, narrative, performance, mixed genre or new media. LPB will give priority consideration to funding projects at the production and post-production stage.

Programs should bring new audiences to public media and have national relevance presenting a range of subjects, issues and viewpoints that complement and challenge existing public media offerings. These programs should also aim to meet the current content priorities of PBS that include but are not limited to: History, Arts, Drama, Science, News and Public Affairs and/or programs that support CPB’s American Graduate by raising awareness of all facets of the high school dropout crisis.

Programs should provide strong storytelling techniques that give voice to the diverse Latino community on public media. While proposals can take creative risks, selected projects must ultimately appeal to a wide variety of television and public media audiences. Projects that reflect personal or individual experience should have universal appeal and provide a lens to Latino history, culture and issues.

P.O.V. Call for Entries 2010

Posted By Luis On April 28, 2009 @ 4:13 pm In Opportunities | No Comments


Whether you’ve got an idea to pitch, a promising rough cut to showcase, or a finished film, now is the time for you to submit your work to P.O.V. [5] for 2010 and beyond.

Submissions will be evaluated in four categories:

Standard: Finished films, or films that are at rough/fine cut stage. (Will be ready for broadcast in 2010)

Shorts: Finished films, or films that are at rough/fine cut stage AND whose final running time is 30 minutes or less. (Will be ready for broadcast in 2010)

Completion Funds: Films that are at assembly/rough/fine cut stage AND are seeking completion funds. (May not be ready for broadcast in 2010)

In-the-Works: Films at any stage, not ready for general submission, that a filmmaker would like to introduce to P.O.V.’s programming team for future consideration.

All films must be submitted through our online submission system, and the deadline for entries this year is Tuesday, June 30. Start by going to http://cfe.pov.org and follow the instructions to complete an entry form.

6-step guide to get you started with the process:

1. Add cfe[at]pov.org [6] to your email address book so that none of our correspondence to you is lost in a spam folder.

2. Make sure your browser will accept pop-up windows, and visit http://cfe.pov.org [7].

3. Click either of the two “Register” links (at the top and middle of the page) and complete the registration page.

4. Check your email for your registration confirmation. The confirmation email will usually arrive instantly, but may take up to 24 hours.

5. Click on the link within the confirmation email to activate your account. This is an obvious, but important step.

6. Once you’ve activated your account, log-in at http://cfe.pov.org [7] to complete your application. Enter your film’s title and click the button that says “Create New Call for Entries form.”

And that’s it! You’ve started a new entry, the rest of the form is pretty self-explanatory. Yance Ford, the P.O.V. Series Producer, has also written a great post about what P.O.V. looks for in a film [8] during the selection process.
