In April 2013, POV Hackathon 3 challenged five teams of filmmakers, developers and designers to “hack” nonfiction media, create working digital prototypes and pitch them to an audience. Here’s a recap in case you missed it, thanks to social media!
POV (a cinema term for "point of view") is television's longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. POV premieres 14-16 of the best, boldest and most innovative programs every year on PBS. Since 1988, POV has presented over 400 films to public television audiences across the country. POV films are known for their intimacy, their unforgettable storytelling and their timeliness, putting a human face on contemporary social issues.
