A Festival of Outstanding Student Documentary Work from Emerson College
The purpose of It’s All True is to showcase student documentary work and to encourage interest in documentary production at Emerson College. In addition to the festival screenings, the host/presenter is a leading documentary filmmaker (previous guests include Academy Award-winners Barbara Kopple and Peter Davis, and Stanley Nelson, Jennifer Fox and Ross McElwee) who also visits documentary classes and meets with student filmmakers. Early submissions of work-in-progress are accepted and encouraged; documentary faculty may provide feedback for revisions that will increase the likelihood of being selected.

- Recommended length is under 30 minutes, but longer works will be considered.
