Spotlight on PhillyCAM

PhillyCAM is a community media center that brings together the people of Philadelphia to make and share media that promotes creative expression, democratic values and civic participation. After a 27 year struggle to get public access television, PhillyCAM is now in its 5th year cablecasting on Comcast 66/966 and Verizon 29/30. Public access serves as an “electronic park” where peoplefrom all neighborhoods have the opportunity to share their views and information on just about anything: arts & culture, sports, cooking, religion, education, local issues, national news, health concerns, the list is only limited by the people1s imagination. This program features short works from Philadelphia’s Public Access TV:
