Call for Entries: KQED's Truly CA

In the spirit of expanding our commitment to diverse voices and viewpoints, and our belief in the power of independent film to educate, entertain and enlighten audiences, KQED has created exciting showcases for the best documentary films about the Golden State - on TV and on the Web.

Through one call for entry each year, Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories reaches out to the independent film community throughout the state to find completed or nearly completed feature-length documentaries. KQED will offer these films KQED packaging, closed captioning, inclusion in the series website, promotion, and a modest licensing fee for local broadcast rights. In addition, one or more films in the series may be offered in-kind, completion resources tailored to the needs of each project which may include an online edit and a sound mix.

On a rolling basis, Truly CA Shorts accepts short (30 minutes or less) documentaries for the new world of film distribution: the Internet. Each month a new film is distributed directly to viewers and subscribers, as a podcast through iTunes, Miro, and other outlets. Films are also featured on Truly CA's Web site. Please note that Truly CA Shorts is for online distribution only -- NOT for broadcast on KQED's television channels.

Deadline: January 11, 2013
