Greenbelt Access Television (GATe) is a nonprofit organization chartered by the City of Greenbelt to bring public access to the Greenbelt area. Public access was developed by Congress in the early 1970’s to ensure local communities would have access to the developing cable networks. GATe receives the vast bulk of its income from fees collected by the City of Greenbelt from Verizon and Comcast, for the purpose of funding local public-access television stations.
GATe was established in 1986 to enrich the cultural landscape by presenting, producing and enabling a wide array of quality contemporary art, performing arts, and community media programs. GATe enables residents to become empowered through the dynamic medium of television and video.
Qualified GATe members may schedule and use GATe facilities and equipment, and anyone interested in public access television is encouraged to become a member of GATe and support the efforts of all who contribute their time and services to create a program for the community.
GATe membership is available to both Greenbelt residents and non-residents.
GATe is the primary sponsor of the Utopia Film Festival.
