Amy Goodman at the Phila Free Library

In 1996 Amy Goodman started a radio show called Democracy Now! to focus on issues that are underreported by mainstream news coverage. Today the award-winning program airs simultaneously on satellite and cable television, more than 1,000 radio stations throughout the world, and the internet. Goodman is a recipient of the first Right Livelihood Award, a commendation for personal courage and social transformation that is known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”; a lifetime achievement award from Harvard’s Nieman Foundation for Journalism; and the George Polk Award. She is the author of five New York Times bestselling books, including Breaking the Sound Barrier.

Smaller Screen, Greater Impact: The How and Why of the Web Series

Web series have become a viable alternative for filmmakers to share their stories.
As this format creates new ways for aspiring and established artists to reach new audiences
and have increased control of their voice, what new hurdles do they create? 

Join us as we take a look at webisodes on a larger screen (some for the first time ever!) and hear from the creators about writing,
shooting, fundraising, and what they've learned throughout the process.
