For the third annual PBS Online Film Festival, PBS is featuring 25 short films online from June 16 – July 31, 2014. The PBS Online Film Festival showcases diverse films from Independent Lens and POV, as well as collaborations with public television producers, including the Center for Asian American Media, Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB), National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC), Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC) and Vision Maker Media.


Vision Maker Media and Wisconsin Media Lab will be showing “Lady Thunderhawks” during the film festival. This video is part of The Ways, a series of stories on culture and language from Native communities around the central Great Lakes. The Lady Thunderhawks varsity basketball team has become a pillar of hope for an entire community.

The films will be available for streaming across all digital platforms, including PBS.org, AppleTV, Roku, YouTube and PBS social media channels. Viewers are encouraged to vote for their favorite film to win the “People's Choice” award. For updates on the festival, follow #PBSolff on Twitter.
