Independent Television Service Announces International Call for Producers Outside United States
Deadline: February 1, 2008
The Independent Television Service's ( http://www.itvs.org/ ) International Call enables independent producers from outside of the United States to create documentaries for U.S. television.
The program is designed to enable storytellers from other countries to introduce U.S. audiences to their global neighbors, opening a window into unfamiliar lives, experiences, and perspectives. In addition to production funding and support, ITVS International will premiere funded programs on U.S. public and commercial television, engaging viewers and maximizing impact through national promotion and educational outreach campaigns.
International Call is an initiative of the International Media Development Fund in partnership with the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
International Call seeks programs that bring international perspectives, ideas, events, and people to U.S. television; content that represents diverse communities and advances underrepresented points of view; content that explores globally significant themes and inspires public dialogue; single documentaries of standard broadcast-hour length; programs that have already begun pro- duction and can be realistically completed within one year of contract; and co-production projects with either international broadcast partner(s) or co-productions with producers from different countries.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old. The primary applicant must be a citizen of another country who does not reside in the United States. Dual foreign/U.S. citizens are eligible if they do not reside in the U.S. American citizens may only participate as co-applicants in a true co-production relationship with a non- U.S. primary applicant. Applicants must have previous film or television production experience in a principal role (producer, co-producer, director, or co-director) as demonstrated by credits on a sample tape of a previously completed work submitted with the application.
