FutureStates Season 4 To Debut Online

on Monday, Apr. 1st

“Nothing is inevitable except the future.”

FutureStates, the public media series that gives emerging and established filmmakers the challenge of imagining a future America, is returning this month. The ITVS/Corporation for Pubic Broadcasting production will run exclusively online at futuretates.tv and PBS.org.

The FutureStates collection is a host of sci-fi gems, grounded in the kind of concern with the shape of our society that made the science fiction of the mid-20th century so valuable. The sci-fi tropes in these stories aren’t an end unto themselves, but a means to explore the consequences of modern day thinking. The previous three seasons are currently viewable at futurestates.tv.

tl;dr: Essential viewing. The shorts start making their debut on April 24th.
