PBS Online Film Festival Starts Today

PBS has launched its first Online Film Festival and showcase of twenty short films from independent filmmakers.  The Festival, featuring award-winning films with a wide array of styles, perspectives and subject matter, will run from February 27 through March 30 and can be accessed via the PBS website and the PBS YouTube channel. 

The theme of the PBS Online Film Festival is ‘Watch Us Surprise You.’  Visitors can vote for their favorite film by “liking” it, either on the Festival’s page on PBS.org or the PBS YouTube channel.  The overall winner will receive top placement on the PBS.org homepage, video portal and YouTube page, promotion on PBS’s social media channels and an official badge for their site.  A People’s Choice award will be given to the film with the most votes. 

 PBS has always been a supporter of independent film and television projects, giving voices to new generations and different perspectives on the world.
