OTV | Open Television is a non-profit platform for intersectional television. We incubate, distribute, and exhibit artists that commercial television networks and art institutions do not develop consistently: artists who identify with multiple identities marginalized by the market and society. OTV experiments with alternative ways to develop, produce, and exhibit art and television. Our programs center artistic expression, intersectionality, Chicago and digital networking.
A series of short films, music videos, and interviews from Chicago-based director, screenwriter, and self-published author Briana Clearly.
Briana Clearly’s focus as a filmmaker is to tell Black Womxn stories. She believes in Black Womxn and other marginalized people owning their own narratives, in front of, and behind the camera.
Clearly was the winner of the Dear White People Film Competition in 2019. She won "Best Chicago Doc" at The Windy City Film Festival in 2019.
Clearly's works have been featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Gentleman Jack's Real to Reel Chicago 2018 & 2019, Big Shoulders International Student Film Festival 2019, and more.
