POV Hackathon Selected for Fledgling Fund Grant

by |

On the heels of our 25th Anniversary Season POV is thrilled to receive support from The Fledgling Fund for our series of POV Hackathons for the next year. As American television’s longest-running series dedicated to contemporary nonfiction programming, POV is proud to be leading the charge into new ways of reinventing the documentary for the web. With this support, the POV Hackathons will continue to thrive—pairing filmmakers, designers, and developers to create new models of engagement that will push social issue storytelling into the digital age. We are grateful for the Fledgling Fund’s investment and for the opportunity to discover new ways to engage our audiences around critical social issues.

Two POV films also received support from The Fledgling Fund to support continued outreach and engagement efforts. Congratulations to American Promise (POV 2013), which premiered at Sundance, and Girl Model (POV 2012), who now have more support in their efforts to reach and engage new audiences.
