POV is known as the best of American public television’s showcase of independent documentaries, offering a highly competitive sum for broadcast distribution of films each season.

All subjects, aesthetic approaches and lengths are welcomed. POV encourages delivering your film online via Vimeo (vimeo.com). When you register and upload your film, make your film downloadable and password-protected. When you complete your online submission form, you can paste in your Vimeo link and password.

Though online content delivery at vimeo.com is strongly preferred, POV will continue to accept content delivered on a USB flash drive or DVD.
