Ever Wonder What Public TV is Like Abroad?

December 12,  2023



By Leslie Fields-Cruz

I was in Charleston, S.C., last week with a few of my public media colleagues reviewing content for the 2024 INPUT conference. While there, I had a chance to visit the recently opened International African American Museum (IAAM). If you haven’t been, be sure to add it to your list of must-see museums. You will not be disappointed. 

INPUT is a gathering of public media producers, content commissioners, and executives from around the world. It is hosted by a different country each year. INPUT 2024 will be held May 5-9 in Charleston.

Unlike a traditional film festival, INPUT programs are to be discussed, challenged, applauded, and everything in between. For content creatives who prioritize building international connections and partnerships, the INPUT conference offers a unique setting to network with professionals from various countries. For those curious about public media content from different parts of the world, you’ll enjoy INPUT because it features a wide array of content that spans different cultures and perspectives. 

If, like me, you enjoy talking about film and media to anyone and everyone, then this global conference offers a unique opportunity to engage in conversations about the content itself and the state of public media here and abroad.  Mark your calendar and we’ll see you there.
