The PBS Online Film Festival showcases powerful stories from filmmakers across the country and reaches an engaged and digitally savvy audience. The 2018 PBS Online Film Festival will take place July 16- July 27, 2018.
Since its launch in 2012, the PBS Online Film Festival has featured diverse films from PBS member stations and ITVS and POV. Collaborations with public television producers, including the Center for Asian American Media, Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB), Black Public Media (BPM), Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC), and Vision Maker Media have also been included. The PBS Online Film Festival has attracted more than 6 million video streams over the first six years.
Users will be able to vote for their favorite films directly on the site or participate in social voting by logging on to their Facebook and/or YouTube accounts and “liking” their favorite films.
Like last year, the PBS Online Film Festival site will be available via bentomatic. This year it will be available for both Bento 2 AND Bento 3, as well as an iframe. Just file a ticket with support to gain access. NOTE: Stations only need to submit a request for Bento 2 / iframe. You can add the Bento 3.0 Bentomatic yourself.
