PBS Online Film Festival 2018

It is once again time for the 2018 PBS Online Film Festival, this year the film festival will take place over a two week period from July 16th through July 27th. In collaboration with member stations PBS seeks to promote great independent short films by leveraging all of its digital and social platforms. The ultimate goal of the festival is to win over new audiences while promoting short films that traditionally would not be seen on broadcast television. Like last year, this year’s People’s Choice winner will be measured by social media engagement.

"Periphery" is the story of a young woman struggling to get by, deciding to take a chance and help someone less fortunate. Through her journey, she discovers her new friend may hold the key to a new way of thinking.
