PBS has launched its first Online Film Festival and showcase of twenty
short films from independent filmmakers. The Festival, featuring award-winning films with a wide array of styles, perspectives and subject matter, will run from February 27 through March 30 and can be accessed via the PBS website and the PBS YouTube channel.

“The theme of the PBS Online Film Festival is ‘Watch Us Surprise You,’ as we think many will be surprised by the depth and breadth of video content that’s available on,” said Jason Seiken, Senior Vice President of Interactive, Product Development and Innovation for PBS. “PBS and member stations have always been a home for independent film and we’re excited to launch this first Festival and introduce viewers to these diverse stories and voices.”

A People’s Choice award will be given to the film with the most votes. Visitors can vote for their favorite film by “liking” it either on the Festival’s page on or the PBS YouTube channel. The overall winner will receive top placement on the homepage, video portal and YouTube page, promotion on PBS’s social media channels and an official badge for their site.
