IDTV: Original programming

created by production students

Our Broadcast Channel

IDTV is a 30-min television show with original content created by production students from BCST 148 (Advanced TV Studio Production) and BCST 149 (Advanced Digital video).

IDTV's mission is to compellingly inform and entertain viewers on issues related to City College of San Francisco and its diverse students, thereby reflecting unique perspectives. The graphic "Look & Feel" is created and supported by BCST 146.

IDTV collaborates with ETC Magazine. A number of ETC stories have been followed upon and brought over to the audio/visual realm by broadcast students with great success. ETC Magazine is a highly-acclaimed and prized magazine, produced each semester by CCSF journalism students and Instructor/Producer Tom Graham of the CCSF Journalism Department.



  • CCSF Cinema Department presents a remounting of the 2011 City Shorts Film Festival. The City Shorts Festival is a student run festival that screens each year in May at the Diego Rivera Theater on the Ocean Campus of City College. City Shorts is the signature event that showcases the raw and innovative talent of students enrolled in the Cinema Department.
  • The programmers chose the best student films, reflecting the culmination of their studies. City Shorts films are wholly produced by students attending City College, working towards a career in film or video, and can be of any genre. The end result is a progressive, edgy and exciting body of work that hearken these new voices as some of the strongest and most talented to come out of the Bay Area.
