Two documentaries from Caldera Productions, a film company out of Lander, are up for three regional Emmy Awards this year. The Heartland Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) nominated "The State of Equality" for best historical documentary and best musical composition and arrangement, and "Ferret Town" for best feature among environmental subjects.

"The State of Equality," a co-production with Wyoming PBS, tells the story of Wyoming women gaining the right to vote 50 years before the rest of the nation, while "Ferret Town" follows the revival of the black-footed ferret from near extinction.

Rose Stellar Burke, Director of Outreach and Media for Caldera Productions, said they are thrilled. 

"These are our first two Emmy nominations. So, it's very exciting for us as a very small production company to be getting these great recognitions," she said.

The winners will be announced July 25. Both films can be viewed online at calderaproductions.com and ferrettownmovie.com.
