POV’s 26th season wrapped up this week, but your chance to add incredible documentaries to your DVD collection continues! The Premiere Party giveaways for Best Kept SecretBrooklyn Castle (streaming free through November 6, 2013), 56 Up (streaming free through November 13) and Listening Is an Act of Love: A StoryCorps Special are still open for entry! Visit our Premiere Party giveaway page for a chance to win DVDs and more

You can enter the giveaway before or after you watch our films — just fill out the entry form here.

Premiere Parties can be big or small, fancy or casual.  Here are some Premiere Party plans from POV viewers:

  • For 56 Up: “Keeping it simple. Inviting a couple of folks my age — just younger than the 56+ crowd. Love watching how others navigate life. “
  • For Best Kept Secret: “We’ll just keep it simple and serve popcorn & drinks. We will invite around 20 guests including friends, family and professionals that work with our 18 year old daughter, Shawn, who has high functioning Autism.”
  • For Brooklyn Castle: “We are an after-school program located, in PS297 (not to far from the school featured in the film) in Williamsburg/Bed Stuy. We service 150 families with students in grades K-5th. I was surprised that many people in our community were not aware of the triumphs of a program very similar to ours.”
  • For Listening Is an Act of Love: A Storycorps Special: “StoryCorps is AWESOME! Everyone should watch, but I can only fit a dozen or so in my space to watch. Of course there will be finger food consisting of light and healthy snacks and beverages.”

Premiere Party winners will also receive organic popcorn from Quinn Popcorn, Fair-Trade and organic dark chocolate from Divine Chocolate and Fair-Trade, organic and shade-grown coffee from Grounds for Change, plus a POV reusable tote bag.

ALL entries will also be eligible for the Grand Prize!
