docchat on Twitter

Skip to the #docchat recap at the bottom of this post »

A public television broadcast can be a home run for independent filmmakers hoping expand their audience and raise awareness around social issues, but how does a filmmaker navigate the public television submission process? What do programs look for in a film? How do I know what strand is best for my documentary? Should I wait until I have a fine cut to submit?
