Connecticut Public Television Looking for Stories

Connecticut Public Television is looking for unapologetic and powerful stories that capture the diverse lives of people of color, diverse experiences, and marginalized identities.


CPTV wants to provide a platform for this existing talent and amplify the voices of emerging storytellers. What CPTV is looking for:

Well-crafted scripted and unscripted web series, features, shorts, narrative documentaries, and episodic TV between 2 and 120 minutes long

Content can be from any genre (comedy, drama, dramedy, sci-fi, horror, thriller, action, experimental, animation, music videos, documentary, reality, etc.)

Content directed or produced by a self-identified person of color or has at least one major character who is from a marginalized group

Content that is already a finished product or will certainly be finished by the time the agreement is signed

* CPTV is offering monetary compensation for content selected
* Films can come from anywhere around the world, but all non-English language films submitted must have English subtitles or be dubbed in English
* Student and first/second-time directors are also encouraged to submit
* Content chosen will be accompanied with an Ense Q&A with the director and posted on the CPTV digital site
* Content will be accepted on a rolling basis, but the earlier you send them, the better
