Smithsonian Channel Screenings

Showing a Smithsonian Channel program is an easy way to bring the Smithsonian to your neighborhood. As part of a Smithsonian Affiliation, Affiliate organizations have access to the Channel’s award-winning programming on popular topics such as air and space, history, science, nature and pop culture.

Affiliates can request a program to complement an exhibition, to be a stand-alone event, or to celebrate a heritage month.* It’s a great way to highlight the Affiliate partnership with the Smithsonian. *Screening rules and restrictions apply. This benefit is for current Smithsonian Affiliates only. If you are interested in becoming an Affiliate, contact us.

The process is easy:

  1. Browse new and upcoming titles, or search the Smithsonian Channel online catalog
  2. Fill out the Screening Request Form

If you are interested in screening a Smithsonian Channel program or have additional questions, please contact Elizabeth Bugbee, (202) 633-5304;
