Brooklyn College is co-hosting the International Public Television Conference (INPUT) this year at Williamsburg Cinema, the week of April 30-May 4th.
INPUT was founded on the principle that every culture is valuable and deserves respect and recognition. It stimulates an increased awareness of cultural, societal, and national sensibilities as it relates to public television programming from around the world.
Brooklyn College students have an opportunity to attend INPUT for free in exchange for a few hours of volunteer work at the conference itself. For BC students, here’s how it works:
If you are able to volunteer for at least one-time slot during the conference week, Prof. Katherine Fry can register you for the conference at no charge (usually $60.00 fee for students), which means you can participate in all the rest of the conference for free.
Here is the link to all the screenings that week:
Email Prof Fry at firstname.lastname@example.org the day/time(s) that work for you. Once you do that, she will slot you in, then get you registered for the conference.

Anjali Kamat, our Belle Zeller professor, will be presenting her work that was the subject of a long-form expose put out by the New Republic and ProPublica last month on Tuesday May 1st at 12:30pm.
