Edouard Isar shared this request with the wikivideo list yesterday.
Michael noted the category
But perhaps some video editors on Commons (or people developing video
for other Foundation projects) have their own suggestions for great
videos to subtitle. Thanks Edouard and PCF for this outreach effort!
going shortly to a meeting on freeing video archives

Hello Wikivideo list members,
I'm contacting you on the behalf of the Participatory Culture Foundation.
You might have heard of Universal Subtitles, a project we are currently
working that enables collaborative creation and editing of subtitles for
online video. Great for reaching an audience that doesn't speak your
language, or to improve accessibility for deaf and hard of hearing users.
We're currently working on a list of social interest videos, as well as on a
page where deaf and hard of hearing users can suggest social videos they'd
like subtitled. We are also working with organizations to ask what videos
they would like subbed. This is where you come in: it is a chance for
Wikivideo to get free captions and translations from volunteers.
So, if you'd like to send me links for one to four videos you'd like
captioned and translated, we'll get the ball rolling!
