The Producers Institute for New Media Technologies is a week-long social impact laboratory that connects the world’s best social issue documentary filmmakers and partner nonprofit organizations with leading technologists and mentors to develop transmedia tools and story assets to make social change happen on the ground.

Producers Institute 2012 is presented in partnership with ITVS and Mozilla. Additional support is generously provided by the Adobe Foundation, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, The Fledgling Fund, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Wyncote Foundation.
The Producers Institute for New Media Technologies was launched in 2007 with funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and connects independent producers and their socially relevant content to emerging models of storytelling and distribution. Through the Institute, documentary production teams from across the US, Europe, and South America have come to BAVC to work with technologists, designers, storytellers, and programmers to develop new models of participatory media.
Past mentors from leading technology companies, including Adobe, Apple, Google, Mobile Active, Phantom Compass, Pentura, Map Office and others, have worked in teams to design and develop working prototypes, which are presented to international funding and review panels at the end of the Institute.
Projects from past Institutes include: The Waiting Room - a multiplatform community engagement project uncovering the needs of underserved patients in the health care system; The Way We Get By - a politics-free web resource connecting US troops in need of support with families and civilians; and Question Bridge - a web portal and an interactive museum installation designed to facilitate a collaborative dialogue about racial identity.
