Submit a Film

SHOW US WHAT YOU'VE GOT! We welcome independent filmmakers and video content providers to submit your film or show for review. The film or series must be directed by a person of African descent OR at least have one lead character who is of African descent.

We want our video content providers to be successful. So, we are doing non-exclusive streaming deals, giving you the flexibility to stream your content on other networks.

Each film that is submitted to kweliTV goes through a review process to see if it fits kweliTV’s mission and standards. We reply back to everyone who submits video content to kweliTV. We only review films from your online screener from a password protected location such as Vimeo.

To submit your content for review:

1) Private Vimeo of the full film that includes a password

2) A synopsis of your project

3) Any accolades (awards or film festival official selections)

4) The length of the film/series/documentary and genre.  

5) If it is a web series, send us at least three episodes within a series.

Please put “Content Submission” in the subject of the email. Send to: submissions@kweli.tv.

While we primarily accept films that have been “official selections” at film festivals, we don’t mind breaking the rules if your content is awesome.

If your content is accepted, we will reach out to you to discuss next steps.
