Do you have a documentary about California you would like to submit for broadcast? It is that time of year again where we at KQED open up our Call for Entries. We want your stories!
The Emmy-award winning TV series Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories is committed to finding diverse voices and viewpoints. We believe in the power of independent film to educate, entertain and enlighten audiences. But we can’t do this without your help. To be considered for season 10, your application must be received by December 31, 2013. There are no submission fees!
Our taste is eclectic: we seek films that cover a broad range of topics and filmmaking styles, from political or social issues to more personal or experimental works. Particular topics of interest include: education, the environment, immigration, the criminal justice system, history, healthcare and governance-issues explored through the lives of ordinary and extraordinary Californians. In terms of style and format, we consider narrated and non-narrated films, first-person or point-of-view projects, cinema verité work and news documentaries. We look for well-crafted stories featuring compelling characters – stories that are provocative, passionate and unforgettable. Not only do we want well-told stories, we're interested in well-made films, works that are both thought-provoking and eye-opening.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Please find our submission form here.
