AFI DOCS, which reached over 13,000 individuals, presented more than 80 films and included the Filmmaker Forum conference. CPB funding underwrote two Filmmaker Forum panels focusing on diversity in filmmaking. In addition, there was a screening of a public media-supported film followed by a post-screening discussion. The ITVS tool, OVEE (Online Video Engagement Experience), was used to livestream all Filmmaker Forum Panels.
