About Truly CA

KQED has created exciting showcases for the best documentary films about California made by independent filmmakers -- Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories and Truly CA Shorts.

From San Francisco's Tenderloin District's history of transgender activism to a look at the transformation of the Mojave Desert's Salton Sea from popular resort to an ecological disaster, Truly CA brings to life true stories from around the Golden State.

Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories is a television broadcast series airing monthly on Sundays at 6pm, a time slot that KQED has reserved for independent works. To find out when to tune in, please check our broadcast schedule.

For information about how to submit a film to the series, please visit our Call for Entries page.
