ACCESS Framingham TV has been such a strong supporter of the Framingham community! They regularly send volunteer crews to film special events at the Callahan Center. They film all the Concerts on the Common, so people who can't get there have a chance to see how much fun the events are. Their dedication to keeping the community informed with the various regular programming they offer and special interviews of notable people in the community does so much to keep us all connected. What a great community partner they are!

Access Framingham is a great place to learn about video productions and television. They have a great team of professionals who are very supportive and patient. I have learned a wealth of skillsets at the studio ultimately ended up in creating my own TV Show called Inspiring Careers. With the support of the Access Framingham team, I am able to share Inspiring stories and create documentaries to inspire others in the community.

I have been affiliated with accessfram for 8 years producing my own Monthly program Veterans Corner TV that is distributed in 10 towns/cities in Metrowest.
Accesfram is my flagship station.
The staff is exceptional in delivering any guidance that is required of me when I seek that guidance.

I am familiar with many local access TV stations and I find that accessfram TV far exceeds all the others in delivering quality service and programs.

Access Framingham is an important organization serving the people of Framingham with needed information not often covered by the Framingham City website. I began as a volunteer about ten years ago and learned much about the process of creating short videos given by Access Framingham. I learned how to video record and edit film. They were like educators. It opened a new door of discovery for me. I will always have fond memories of how this experience has affected my life. Thank you, Access Framingham.

Access Framingham TV is a local treasure giving focus to events in our city.

I joined it as a board member .. treasurer.. I have have expanded my tv knowledge by hosing a local sports interview show,(FRAMINGHAM FAN TO FAN.. see photo of guests from Framingham State Univ field hockey team) taking video editing classes and producing shows for other non profits such as the local history center. I’ve also filmed and hosted short bits for the stations biweekly news show, the Framingham Best.
Yes, Access Framingham TV IS A LOCAL GEM!

I am proud to be a part of the volunteering group with Access Framingham Television station. I remember when I started out I had no idea what to do and where to start. With the instruction of Francesca and the Access team I was able to learn the basic of editing and move from editing one program in 3 weeks to complete the same program in a few hours. Producing the Greater Framingham Community Church each week and helping with local production in the Metro West Community and Boston.

I start school in Media Broadcasting at Roxbury Community College. Recently I graduated with my certificate and at the moment I am pursuing an Associate Degree in Broadcasting.

These achievement I credit to the opportunity that I was given at Access Framingham Television Station. Few years ago, I receive the first annual Bill Rabkin- Volunteer of the year award, in recognition of my enthusiasm and dedication to learning all aspect of television production.

I am happy to give Access Framingham Television (Framingham Public Access Corporation) 5 stars as they continue to engage, serve and enrich the community by developing programming by and for the people of Framingham, providing educational opportunities, and facilitating the exchange of ideas and information through traditional and new media.

Framingham Public Access staff and volunteers were extremely helpful this past year with a project by our AmeriCorps member focusing on green nonprofits in Framingham. They went above and beyond in making sure the project was completed successfully. Just one example of how great they are and how hard they work sharing news about the community.

So lucky to have learned about them and become a volunteer! They taught me how to use the video gear to successfully shoot all kinds of events. And then they taught me editing, which vastly improved what and how I shot events. It's been fun to learn about the gear and the process, but also very rewarding to see what I shoot go out to the wider community via the station channel and their You tube channel as well. It's a wonderful feeling to have the training under my belt that allows me to then help out other small organizations in town that don't have any PR expertise or PR staff, but want to get out info about their orgs mission or event. I've learned so much about my town because of AF! They are so plugged into all kinds of things going on in town and always trying to get it covered. The staff is incredibly generous with their expertise, time and patience. Stellar organization.

Framingham Public Access showed a lot of care towards local communities and events. If you want something covered you can guarentee they will be there and unlike many other public access they will go out of their way to make sure you get a copy of the broadcast and are properly represented. The staff here are very close and it shows in their work Frank, Shavarsh, and Jared were extremely helpful if I needed any help.

I've been a volunteer member of Access Framingham, the Public Access community media center operated by Framingham Public Access Corporation, for more than 10 years. During that time, I've created and contributed hundreds of TV programs that have aired on local cable TV in our community as well as being streamed for on-demand viewing.

Membership in Access Framingham has let me learn new skills, and put these to good use when I record and edit programs. It has also given me the opportunity to work with many other members, together contributing to the enjoyment and sense of community.
