Miami, FL (January 2, 2018) – South Florida PBS (WPBT & WXEL) will broadcast premiere of the film-maker series on January 2nd, 2018 at 7:30 PM on WPBT and January 8th at 5:30 PM on WXEL. Additional episodes will air during January on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM on WPBT and Mondays at 5:30 PM on WXEL.
The film-maker project was co-directed by three senior Emmy Award-winning South Florida PBS staffers and local film professionals. The goal of the project was to acquire, broadcast and distribute emerging South Florida filmmakers work as well as provide mentorship and guidance as they build careers from their passions. The results of this collaboration will be seen in the form of short and long-form independent films that will air on WPBT and WXEL from January to June 2018. From documentaries to narrative films, these stories will make you cry, laugh and wonder. This film-maker series underscores the depth of our homegrown talent in all aspects of filmmaking, exposing these remarkable films to our SFPBS audience, often for the first time.
