WORLD TV will premiere a new long-form documentary program in the spring of 2012 that will feature documentaries you won’t see any place else on broadcast television.

If you’re an accomplished filmmaker with a completed documentary and you think it has a compelling story– we want to hear about it! Submit your doc!

What we are looking for?

This new program looks to showcase films that explore domestic issues and which feature diverse voices from communities all over the United States.

While the show will be inclusive of all makers, WORLD TV’s goal is to highlight those films that give our viewers a “snapshot” of the transforming American life —the glamour, the grit and the hope of a new and changing American demographic.

From contemporary life on Native reservations, to stories of recovery on the Gulf — to hardships and revitalization in the mountains of Appalachia — the transformation of emerging urban centers like Brooklyn and St Louis, WORLD is looking for stories that document the times in which we we live

If your film strikes these chords, we want to consider it for broadcast and web distribution. Submit your doc!

Submission deadline for season 1 is March 1st 2012
