In 2010 the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Public Broadcasting Service issued a joint Call for Proposals for television pilots that would showcase diverse talent and stories from across the United States. BAVC was excited by the opportunity to produce content again – as we’d done before on projects like SPARK for KQED and the Western Exposure, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. With these experiences in our back pocket, BAVC partnered up with Sunny Side Up Films - whose work we knew from the 2009 Producers Institute – and set out to develop a proposal.
Once everything was approved in 2011 we dug in and worked fast and hard to produce a pilot – and now we’re thrilled to present three short films by three incredible directors and producers. We look forward to you seeing their work, hearing what you think, and reading your own stories on this site.
