INPUT 2009

    We are pleased to invite you to take part in INPUT
    - the International Conference of Public
    Televisions, which will take place on May 10-15,
    2009 at the Palace of Culture and Science in

    The INPUT conference is the largest international
    meeting of public television stations. It is one of
    those conferences that not only brings the directions of television program development
    closer, but also contributes to improving the standards to which TV programs are realized.
    INPUT gives birth to a new understanding of television as an institution operating in the
    public interest.
    INPUT takes place in a different country every year. In the past the conference has been held
    in Barcelona - 2004, San Francisco - 2005, and Taiwan - 2006. Switzerland hosted INPUT in
    2007 and the Republic of South Africa in 2008.
    INPUT is a voluntary organization run by people who work closely with public television
    stations. Organized for 30 years, the conferences have a significant impact on world-wide TV
    production development, initiate co-production projects, and help creators and producers in
    establishing international contacts. The name INPUT is an acronym that stands for
    INternational PUblic Television.

    INPUT 2009
    For the first time in history in May 2009, INPUT will be held in a post-communist country. It
    will be a historical moment - the 20th anniversary of the overthrow of totalitarian
    communism in Central and Eastern Europe. In connection with that fact, besides creative
    artists from around the world, we would like to invite the largest possible group of public
    television representatives as well as creative artists and independent producers from other
    post-communist countries to take part in the Warsaw Conference and to become involved in
    international television cooperation.
    During the Warsaw conference, as every year, several dozen of the best, most interesting and
    most attractive programs and films produced by public television stations from around the
    world will be presented and discussed. About a thousand creative artists, journalists, and
    producers affiliated with 60 public television from every continent customarily take part in
    screenings and discussions. Each year conference guests also include representatives of
    cultural institutions and audiovisual organizations.
    We hope that INPUT 2009 will contribute in improving collaboration among public television
    stations from this part of the world and strengthening their position on the international TV
