San Francisco-based funding organization ITVS International is shifting its application process to consider doc projects on a rolling basis, rather than having a once-a-year submission deadline.

The new International Initiative application process marks a notable shift for the organization, which enables independent producers from outside the United States to create documentaries for U.S. television, often ending up on PBS.

“Through our International Initiative global storytellers introduce U.S. audiences to their world, their neighbors, opening a window into unfamiliar lives, experiences and perspectives,” the organization said in a statement.
