POV: Documentaries with a Point of View - series broadcast on PBS, produced by the American Documentary, Inc.

Screen Documentaries for FREE at your Library

Every year POV assembles 16-20 films to broadcast nationally on PBS from June - October, and part of our mission is to lend out films for free screenings, nationwide. We also develop free resources to accompany each film, including a Discussion Guide, Lesson Plan, and Reading List.

We recently announced the new line-up of documentaries for our 28th season on PBS, which will premiere on June 22nd. We're excited to share these new films, and they address a wide-range of topics, from LGBT issues, to the child welfare system, to art, mental illness, the war in Syria, and many others.

We have more 80 titles available to borrow from our Lending Library<http://www.amdoc.org/outreach_filmlibrary1.php>. You can browse by title or topic, or let me know if you have any specific topics in mind and I'd be glad to make recommendations.

Join our network to host your own POV screening. Just register and fill out an event application, and we'll send you a copy of the film. After your screening, all you have to do is tell us how your event went and send us back the film.
