The Independent Production Fund

The Independent Production Fund IPF’s mission is to use television to educate, engage, and challenge viewers to consider issues, ideas and public figures from new perspectives.
Since 1987, the Independent Production Fund (IPF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has been creating documentary and informational programs addressing public affairs, business and finance, medicine and health, and culture. IPF’s programs have appeared on the commercial networks, PBS, HBO and other cable outlets. Through collaboration with various international broadcasters, the documentaries have been seen by viewers worldwide. Our producers have won media's most prestigious awards, including Emmys, Peabodys, CINE Golden Eagles, ACE Awards, the Dupont Journalism Award and recognition at major international film festivals. IPF also produces videos and DVDs used in organizational development, promotion, and professional training. Clients have included: Dartmouth Medical School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Harlem Educational Activities Fund, the HealthCare Chaplaincy, the Coalition of Voluntary Mental Health Agencies, Zero to Three, and Prudential. IPF develops highly effective community engagement and educational outreach campaigns to bring our programs into local venues and classrooms. These campaigns include study and discussion guides, interactive informational web sites, partnerships with grassroots organizations, and the tools needed to initiate dialogue at the local level around specific topics. IPF pioneered successful joint-ventures with magazine and book publishers, translating print information into entertaining video formats with numerous authors and companies, including Joseph Campbell, Jamake Highwater, Newsweek, Money Magazine, The Financial Times, US News & World Report, Consumer Reports and Sylvia Porter's Personal Finance. IPF is experienced in international co-production. The company's crews have produced in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and South America, and co-produced with BBC (Great Britain), CCTV (People's Republic of China), NHK (Tokyo), and KBS (Korea).

In the spirit of Angelina Jolie's op-ed piece in today's New York Times - Kartemquin has extended their free streaming of the film "In the Family" for free for another 2 weeks which educates about the BRCA gene. http://inthefamily.kartemquin.com/content/watch-family-free-online

How much would you sacrifice to survive? When Chicago filmmaker Joanna Rudnick tested positive for the "breast cancer gene" at age 27, she knew the information could save her life, but she didn't know what to do about it.

What If Seed&Spark Is Successful? | Filmlinker

Very exciting stuff happening. Seed & Spark has already caught our eye and we're rooting for it! http://filmlinker.com/blog/2013/04/what-if-seedspark-is-successful/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+filmlinker+%28Filmlinker+RSS+Feed%29

There’s been a lot already written about Seed&Spark. My first thoughts on S&S are that it’s a very interesting take on the whole crowdfunding landscape with an angle on a ‘fair trade’ filmmaking movement. The “wedding registry” wish-list is also a unique set up that gives an alternative to a cash do...
