A little about us

Greenbelt Access Television (GATE) is a non-profit organization developed to bring public access to the Greenbelt area.

History

A Greenbelt City Council appointed committee was appointed to develop an independent organization to foster public cable access. In 1986, a charter was incorporated establishing GATE as a non-profit, 501 C(3) corporation. In 1997, with the accumulated fees from over the years, the Committee was able to hire Kjell Forsting, a pioneer for cable in his native Sweden. Mr. Forsting had the foresight to purchase a digital editing suite for the newly established GATE Studio in the renovated Community Center. In 2005, GATE sponsored its first Utopia Film Festival which continues every year due to the efforts of a volunteer committee. Each October, videos from around the world are screened in various spaces around Greenbelt. GATE has established its own designated channels on Comcast channel 77 and Verizon FiOS channel 19. Today, we keep Kjell Forsting's vision alive by maintaining the digital quality he saw as the future of video production.
