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.
