CPB AND PBS ANNOUNCE FIRST PRODUCERS ACADEMY
Continuing its quest to nurture public television’s next generation of creative talent, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) today announced the first five Producers Academy Fellows, selected from more than one hundred applicants. Fellowships were given to talented, dynamic film and videomakers as an opportunity to work with some of public television’s best producers. In addition, 20 individuals have been chosen to receive Producers Academy Stipends to attend the IFP (Independent Feature Project) Market. PBS previously awarded stipends to 40 producers to attend the PBS Annual Meeting in Philadelphia in May.
