What's a Philo? The festival is named after Philo T. Farnsworth, the father of modern television. Philo was born August 19, 1906 on a farm near Beaver City, Utah. As a youth in 1922, Philo first revealed his scientific ideas for an all-electric television system. He later established an electronics laboratory in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he succeeded in turning his dreams into reality by inventing the first receiving tube for television transmissions.
It is fitting that the ACM Central States Region honors the memory of Philo T. Farnsworth by recognizing the efforts of modern day pioneers who work to further develop the use of this technology and promote the use of media in our communities. The "PHILO" is awarded as recognition of excellence in media creation.
What's this Festival about? The Philo Festival of Media Arts is all about you: the media producer. It's a unique combination of competition, collaboration, educational and creative content hosted by the Central States Alliance for Community Media.
