Truly CA, KQED’s showcase for the best documentaries about the Golden State, features a film each month on selected Sundays at 6pm on KQED TV, with repeats on KQED’s other digital channels and Comcast Video on Demand.
The deadline to submit your feature-length documentary to Truly CA Season Eight has been announced: Entries must arrive at KQED by Monday, January 9, 2012 at 5pm — this is not a postmark deadline.
Truly CA is looking 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. Truly CA films must be about California in some way — not just taking place in California. The films must also be primarily shot in California, and preferably made by California’s talented, independent, documentary filmmakers.
