Combining KQED's commitment to diverse voices and viewpoints with our belief in the power of independent film, KQED has created a showcase for outstanding documentaries about the Golden State. Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories can be seen both on television and on the web.
Every year, KQED looks to the independent film community to find feature-length or short documentaries that explore various facets of California life. After a competitive review process, selected films will receive packaging, closed captioning, promotion, and a modest licensing fee.
Submission Deadline: We have a rolling deadline for submissions but to be considered for Season 14, your application must be received by December 1st, 2018.
Broadcast of our 14th Season is currently scheduled starting in June, 2019
We consider a broad range of topics and styles, from political and social issues to more personal or experimental works. Above all, we're looking for well-crafted stories that feature compelling characters -- stories that are provocative, passionate and unforgettable.
