Public media formats – all genres and lengths are eligible

 Feature length films are rarely if ever shown in full at INPUT.  Please submit the broadcast cut of your film. Online public media is often best demonstrated through a promotional short overview video explaining the highlights of the project to help international audiences understand the impact of the media.  Please send links.

INPUT is evolving and international conference organizers are trying new ways to stimulate discussion and meet the needs of delegates. Keep in mind that this is a public television conference and not a traditional film festival or market.  We will contact you if facilitators prefer to show a section of your film.  If you have mini-series or series, please enter ONE episode that best represents the series. You may send the entire series or mini-series as support materials. This does not apply to independent film series featuring a unique film in each episode.

Please submit U.S. produced programs only.  If your program is an international production acquired by U.S. public media for broadcast, please submit it to the country most relevant to the international producer/broadcast/story  If you have questions, please email  us for guidance or contact the national coordinator of your country:
