What Documentary Are You Working On?

post your documentaries online

Welcome to the Worldwide Documentaries Showcase where you can watch documentaries online and share your own documentary (or trailer) with a worldwide audience!

This is your chance to create some buzz, build an audience and raise more funds.

Tens of thousands of visitors come to Desktop-Documentaries.com every month and the more exposure you get the better.

That's called viral marketing!

And the best part, it's 100% free. This site is run by filmmakers just like you and we want to help you to succeed. All we ask for in return is fresh original content describing your project.

Each page has it's own Facebook and Twitter button, so your friends and family can quickly share your documentary page.

Please note: If you don’t have a trailer, but have a documentary idea you’d like to pitch, go to the Documentary Ideas page and submit your idea there.
