Spotlight on AFI DOCS 2020 Official Sponsor Corporation for Public Broadcasting
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) is Official Sponsor of Cinema’s Legacy at AFI DOCS, a special archival/retrospective film section, which includes two public media films this year. In addition, CPB is sponsor of the Special Presentation event featuring the film PORTRAITS AND DREAMS, which has its world premiere at AFI DOCS. CPB is also sponsor of the AFI DOCS Forum, five days of panels, conversations and meetings for filmmakers, industry personnel and documentary enthusiasts. Several screenings of public media films will be sponsored by CPB, including two films that are part of a special focus on Women and the Vote timed with the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the U.S.
During these turbulent times, Americans are turning to public media to strengthen their connection to community and country. CPB remains true to their mission through the breadth and depth of voices and stories from every locally-owned and operated public media station. While ensuring the health and safety of their workers, local stations are providing trusted and life-saving information, distance-learning resources to students and teachers, and helping Americans adjust to a new normal.
