American Documentary | POV


POV is the longest running showcase for independent non-fiction films on American television. Since 1988, POV has pioneered the art of presentation and outreach, using documentary film to support communities in conversation about today's most pressing social issues.

Involvement in film

We have provided production funding, licensing fee or helped raise additional support for the films. We also produce discussion guides, lesson plans, resource lists, video modules, policy analysis, etc. – that are available for free for partners and the public to use. POV’s community engagement team partners with organizations around the country to screen the films, organize discussions and provide relevant local information. POV produces a national media campaign focusing on the issues that includes extensive television, radio, and print coverage, as well as online marketing campaigns and social media engagement.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
