Localore, a new initiative produced by AIR (Association of Independents in Radio), is transforming public media. Our 10 Lead Producers, in collaboration with their local station radio and television incubators, spent the last year focusing their ingenuity on blending digital and traditional broadcast tools and platforms to expand the reach of public media in local communities and establish new capacity for R&D at stations. Collectively, our local production teams, in collaboration with technology partner Zeega, are leading us to a new vision of public media, pushing the envelope on storytelling and documentary to shine new light on a rich and diverse 21st century America.

About The DocYard:
For decades, Boston has been a center for documentary filmmaking. It is a place where students come to learn and experiment, where some of documentary’s giants are teaching and creating new work, and where the craft is continuously nurtured and expanded. Today’s filmmakers are breaking new ground that has its foundation, more often than not, in Boston’s rich documentary legacy.
Celebrating what is innovative, interesting, and inspiring in documentary, The DocYard is a bi-weekly film and discussion series that takes place every other Monday. Their goal is to grow a vibrant, creative community for Boston’s filmmakers, film students and film lovers through each of these special events.
