ITVS open call to help you finish your film & distribute it on public television

ITVS  is looking for exceptional storytelling that’s in line with their mission: stories that take risks, tackle important issues, and are seldom seen in public media. They’ll partner with you to help you finish your film, then distribute it on public television.

As part of your application, you’ll submit a work in progress video from your production. For pre-production projects, see Diversity Development Fund or Digital Open Call. On average, Open Call applicants spend 1-2 weeks completing their applications. One to three percent of Open Call applicants receive funding. Amounts average between $150,000 and $350,000.

Open Call is not a grant. ITVS provides a co-production investment in your project.  Open until July 28, 2017 11:59 PM PDT. Apply today: https://itvs.org/funding/open-call

ITVS Open Call

btb_opencallOpen Call provides completion funds for single nonfiction public television programs on any subject, and from any viewpoint. Projects must have begun production as evidenced by a work-in-progress video. Open Call funding is only available to independent producers who are citizens or legal residents of the U.S. and its external territories. Carefully review the full eligibility criteria before beginning an application.

Open Call accepts:

  • Single programs of standard broadcast length (half-hour or one-hour). In rare cases, when a filmmaker’s skills, subject, and story structure warrant it, ITVS will consider programs at feature lengths.
  • Works-in-progress (for nonfiction submissions), i.e. projects that have already begun production
  • Programs that can be completed within one year of contract
