The longest running showcase of independent film on PBS.
THE TERRITORY on PBS is the longest-running showcase for independent short film and is gearing up for another remarkable season featuring emerging and established indie film artists and directors for the show’s 36th season. With your help, THE TERRITORY will be able to take its PBS series to national audiences.
Eager to take THE TERRITORY to national PBS audiences for the first time, the show has launched a Kickstarter campaign to pay for national broadcast. Continually proving its diverse and avant-garde programming, season 36 promises a global perspective in content, style, and unmatched creativity.
The season will offer THE RUSTED (2015), a dark psychological thriller from writer/director Kat Candler starring Jena Malone (Batman vs. Superman (2016), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 2 (2016)) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games film series). In addition to Chilean director Gabriel Osorio Vargas‘ Oscar-winning animated short BEAR STORY (2014).
The season also includes retrospective episodes featuring shorts like FAIR SISTERS (1981), Louis Black, Missy Boswell and Ed Lowry‘s 80’s take on a “high stakes” poker game; and writer/director Robert Rodriguez‘s 1991 debut short BEDHEAD (1991), about supernatural siblings whose problems amplify with the discovery of their unique gifts.
Eager to take THE TERRITORY to national PBS audiences for the first time, the show has launched a Kickstarter campaign to pay for national broadcast. You can view the full slate of films for its 36th season, and learn about the national broadcast fundraiser by visiting and supporting the project on KICKSTARTER.
