WORLD Channel Submissions

Your voice. Your film. Your channel. Submit today

At WORLD Channel, we present documentaries and news programs that examine and celebrate the human condition through personal stories from around the globe.  Our programs ask the question: How do we struggle, over-come, and thrive in a changing world?

To find the best and broadest answers, we seek storytellers who want to share their images and ideas on our broadcast channel and websites.

We are currently taking submissions for completed non-fiction projects of any length.  

Submit Now! 


If selected, your work may air or stream as a WORLD Channel exclusive, a WORLD Channel short segment, or as part of a WORLD Channel series.

Our original series include:

America ReFramed, a showcase for long-form independent documentaries that give viewers a snapshot of the today’s American life - the guts, glory, and grit of a new and changing America

Local, USA, an original series of half-hour episodes that focus each week on a single theme uniting one or more short-form stories from around America

• Global Voices, our long-running documentary series that takes viewers on surprising and emotional journeys around the world, presenting personal stories with a universal impact.

Don’t think your project will fit into any of our series? No problem. Submit your project and we’ll take a look at how it may fit into our programming.

All submissions must adhere to PBS and WGBH editorial and funding guidelines.  Please read these guidelines before submitting your project.

Our submissions are open and rolling.

Submit Now!  We look forward to reviewing your film!
