U.S. pubcaster PBS’s indie doc strand ‘POV’ is calling for entries to be submitted to its 2019 season.

For those looking to submit to the annual series, POV suggests that films be delivered online via Vimeo and be download-enabled. Links should be password-protected, with the passwords included in the submission form. Content will also be accepted via USB flash drives.

For non-English submissions, burned-in subtitles to the link/file are a must.

All entries must be submitted by June 16, 2018. Submissions received after this date will roll into the following year’s submission cycle unless an extension is granted by ‘POV’. According to ‘POV’, projects will be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis, year-round.

Now in its 31st season, the strand’s current slate of films includes such titles as David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg’s portrait of Bill Nye: Science GuyJonathan Olshefski and Sabrina Schmidt Gordon’s look at a family in North Philadelphia in Quest; Adam Sobel’s examination of migrant workers in The Workers Cup; and Kimberly Reed’s political thriller Dark Money (pictured).
