About Us

ITVS Community Cinema-Philadelphia presents public screenings of documentary films from the PBS series “Independent Lens” monthly September through May. The series is managed by a Regional Outreach Coordinator assigned by ITVS (Independent Television Service). Philadelphia is one of over 35 markets nationwide featuring public Community Cinema screenings. Screenings and discussions are presented in partnership with WHYY and other organizations. Screenings take place in venues around the city. All Events are Free and Open to the Public!

The Independent Television Service (ITVS) brings to local, national and international audiences high-quality, content-rich programs created by a diverse body of independent producers. ITVS programs take creative risks, explore complex issues, and express points of view seldom seen on commercial or public television. ITVS programming reflects voices and visions of underrepresented communities and addresses the needs of underserved audiences, particularly minorities and children.
