DOCTalks PRESENTS TV SERIES & FUND

In 2016, the DOCTalks Presents TV Series & Fund initiative was conceived and launched. This is a documentary television series that was piloted in the spring and summer of 2017 on CHCO, a community television station in St. Andrew’s, New Brunswick. The TV series aired 16 documentary films in prime time on CHCO. Eight of the documentary films came from independent producers in Atlantic Canada and eight from the National Film Board of Canada.

 Given the positive feedback received from filmmakers and CHCO audiences, the DOCTalks Presents TV Series & Fund expanded this initiative in 2018 to include CIMC, another community television station in Arichat, Nova Scotia. From May to September 2018 ten documentary films were aired in prime time on CHCO and CIMC. Nine films came from independent producers in Atlantic Canada and one film from an indie producer in the USA.

 In May 2018, DOCTalks began exploring the expansion of the DOCTalks Presents TV Series & Fund initiative across Canada and the United States. Through “letters of collaboration” with CACTUS (Canadian Association of Community Television Users and Stations – which CHCO & CIMC are members) and NETA (National Educational Telecommunications Association – which is affiliated with PBS stations), DOCTalks is planning to distribute knowledge-based documentary films to tens of millions of Canadian and American households.

 Based on this collaboration, DOCTalks, CACTUS and NETA-PBS officials are mutually proceeding to investigate programming, funding and distribution models for the DOCTalks Presents TV Series & Fund initiative in Canada and the United States.
