The 2011 Hometown Video Festival is Coming!

The Hometown Video Awards are coming up fast, with a submission deadline of April 16, 2011. The festival honors and promotes community media, and local cable programs that are distributed on Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) access cable television channels. Awards are presented to creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats and move viewers to experiences television in a different way.

For CCTV members, if you enter your program in this festival through CCTV then we are willing to pay 1/2 of your entry fee. Normal entry fee is $40 bucks, your fee could be as low as $20 bucks. You need only to deliver your DVD, entry form, and check for $20 (payable to CCTV) by April 8 and we will handle the rest. Pretty good deal, right?

CCTV producers have submitted many award winning programs to this festival over the years and we encourage our members to submit their works.
