What is the review process for International Call?

ITVS International staff evaluates all applications to determine eligibility. Eligible applications are then reviewed by ITVS International staff and outside evaluators selected by ITVS International. Evaluators are chosen from a pool of filmmakers, producers, editors, programmers and others who have extensive international experience.

Based on these reviews and further input from ITVS staff, highly rated projects are submitted to an outside panel for final selection. This panel includes a diverse international group of commissioning editors, filmmakers, television professionals, production consultants, academics and regional and/or subject experts. The panel meets with ITVS International and recommends projects for funding.

Selected programs are offered a contract for U.S. broadcast rights in exchange for funding and services. The call is extremely competitive as we are only able to fund approximately five percent of International Call applicants.
