Availability information for this program

South Florida PBS is pleased to launch film·maker, a film series for emerging filmmakers from which we acquired, broadcasted, and distributed their work, in addition to providing mentorship. With the support of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the film maker initiative served 40 artists and reached an audience of over 2. 4 million in the South Florida region. Participants ranged in ages from 22 to 78 and represented cultures from around the globe. The 40 projects featured in film-maker include documentaries, narrative works, music videos, and more. These films will make you cry and laugh; they will entertain and inspire you.

Episodes:

  • In this episode we feature three notable films: a carpenter contemplates life's voyage in "Vessel," a narrative film from Gabrielle Olivera; "The Truth About Huntington's," by Dominique Seward, details how Huntington's Disease affects families across the U.S.; and Grace Shafir's "Heart of the Everglades" reveals the unique beauty of this National Park and the dedication of its caretakers.
