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:
- Browse new and upcoming titles
- Fill out the Screening Request Form
Please allow 8 weeks advance notice for approval.
- Publicize the screening and program only after receiving written approval and a license from the Smithsonian Channel.
