Diverse Voices Project

The Diverse Voices Project IV (DVP), with up to $100,000 in co-production funding available to emerging filmmakers, is POV's initiative to support stories about diverse communities produced by emerging makers.

Introduction

POV, public television's premier showcase for independent, non-fiction film is seeking to support emerging filmmakers through its DIVERSE VOICES PROJECT, a co-production fund supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. POV values exemplary storytelling, well crafted aesthetics, compelling characters and real-life drama shaped by the unique perspective of a filmmaker with something to say to a large audience. POV believes in presenting the work of filmmakers that reflect experiences not commonly represented on television, offer a springboard for discussion, and provide a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

The Diverse Voices Project IV, with up to $100,000 in co-production funding per project is designed to foster emerging and diverse documentary directors and producers with production support and mentoring with a full menu of services. Ultimately DVP will bring fresh voices to PBS, diversify the stories being featured on the national PBS schedule, and support a talent pool that has not had access to public television resources.

The call for POV's Diverse Voices Project is currently closed. Please sign up for our newsletter to stay informed of upcoming opportunities to submit your film to POV.
