About Third World Newsreel (TWN)

Third World Newsreel gratefully acknowledges the recent New York State Council on the Arts Capital grant that will support TWN's technology infrastructure for its media preservation initiatives! We thank Governor Hochul and the NYS legislature, NYSCA Executive Director Mara Manus and NYSCA Chair Katherine Nicholls, the Council staff, and panel for the grant that will help TWN continue its media arts work into the future.

Third World Newsreel (TWN) is an alternative media arts organization that fosters the creation, appreciation, preservation and dissemination of independent film and video by and about people of color and social justice issues.

TWN is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the New York State Legislature, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council, Color Congress, MOSAIC, the National Film Preservation Foundation, New York Humanities, Ford Foundation, and the Peace Development Fund, as well as individual donors.

The TWN Workshop will receive support from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in 2022-2023.
