National Video Resources
"National Video Resources (NVR) is a not-for-profit organization established in 1990 by the Rockefeller Foundation. Our goal is to assist in increasing the public's awareness of and access to independently produced media & film and video as well as motion media delivered through the new digital technologies. NVR believes these works, documentaries as well as narrative, experimental and educational films and videos, provide important visions of diversity and individual expression that contribute unique perspectives to our culture. NVR designs and implements projects that help enable individuals and organizations such as public libraries, colleges and universities, and other non-profits to acquire and use independent film and video."
