True/False is coming…
I am in awe of what you have built in Columbia. I have been to many festivals around the world, but I have never witnessed the unique combination of community spirit, excited audiences, daring programming and all-around fantastic atmosphere that you have fostered around T/F.
Simon Kilmurry, executive director, American Documentary/POV
The festival will celebrate its 10th year in 2013…
We figured out that you are secretly brainwashing us, in preparation for your tenth anniversary whereupon you will send out the balloon signal and wherever your past attendees are, the chip will kick in and we will do whatever you have programmed us to.
Natalie Difford, Chicken & Egg
Are you ready?
How often does anything truly live up to expectations? How common is it for our false hopes to be dashed by too much hype? What a wonder to experience a weekend that went so far beyond our imaginings. We were beyond dazzled by the expert organization, warm reception and friendly audiences. True/False reminded me what our film community actually feels like and why I love it so much.
Heidi Ewing, director, Detropia
Mark your calendars for Feb. 28-March 3rd…
For any documentarian, True/False is nirvana. You walk down the street of Columbia Missouri — and you are stopped by students and secretaries, college professors and construction workers, and they all want to talk to you about your film, the intricacies of its subject and the aesthetic choices made! This is the way it’s supposed to be and never is: the town lives and breathes docs. When I went to True/False, I remembered what I sometimes forget: the unalloyed joy of making and watching docs.
Alex Gibney, director, Taxi to the Dark Side
And buy your opens in a new windowpasses today.
I could not have asked for a more intimate, smart, meaningful experience.
