International Public Television (INPUT)
This seminar brought 15 journalism fellows together in San Francisco with high-ranking public broadcast media executives, media scholars, journalism educators and an international consortium of independent public television filmmakers to explore the economic, political and technological forces converging to refocus the role of public television in the 21st century.
In addition to the seminar, fellows concurrently registered in the 2005 INPUT conference. INPUT is an annual international public television film festival, held each year in a different country, drawing independent, public-interest producers and television professionals from more than 60 countries for five days of film screenings, discussions, networking and skills training.
This conference was developed in collaboration with Patricia Aufderheide, professor and director of the Center for Social Media at the School of Communication at American University It is sponsored by the Western Knight Center for Specialized Journalism.
What fellows have to say about past seminars:
"Excellent. Quality of speakers and presentations was superb. I really got a lot out of this."
