MacArthur foundation renews grant for POV series

New season airs June 2011 on PBS

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has renewed support of American Documentary’s docu series “POV,” with a $1.5 million grant funding the series’ online and educational activities through 2013.

“POV” will begin its 24th season on PBS in June, making it TV’s longest-running independent docu series. Every year, the show bows 14-16 docus. It has featured the work of Errol Morris, Ross McElwee, Robert Kenner, Marshall Curry, Laura Poitras and Katrina Brown.

“At MacArthur, we view documentaries as a form of journalism, supplementing the news media in helping audiences make sense of their community and world,” said Kathy Im, director of media, culture and special initiatives at the foundation. “The MacArthur Foundation is proud of its long-time association with ‘POV.’ Each year, the series presents timely and thought-provoking films that raise important and under-reported issues.”

The upcoming season of “POV” will focus on globalization, environmentalism and wars, present and past.
