DOCYARD 2013 Winter Season Closer! Join us!
Date: April 22, 7PM at the Brattle Theatre, Cambridge
Details: 90min, USA, 2012
Synopsis: Localore, a new initiative produced by AIR (Association of Independents in Radio), is transforming public media. Our 10 Lead Producers, in collaboration with their local station radio and television incubators, spent the last year focusing their ingenuity on blending digital and traditional broadcast tools and platforms to expand the reach of public media in local communities and establish new capacity for R&D at stations. Collectively, our local production teams, in collaboration with technology partner Zeega, are leading us to a new vision of public media, pushing the envelope on storytelling and documentary to shine new light on a rich and diverse 21st century America.
