Since 2004 thousands have converged on the town of Columbia, Mo. for the annual True/False Documentary Film Festival. Creatives from across the Central Missouri region utilize the extravaganza as an opportunity to show off their creative personalities via various costumes, music, sculpture, and performance art.
"This is an extraordinarily vital time for nonfiction filmmaking as an artistic form. Our goal is to forge a supportive, celebratory refuge for filmmakers and amplify the possibilities of creative nonfiction. True/False exists in a permeable, in-between land – bounded by fiction and nonfiction, but also bridging cultures and disciplines. Within that space, we encourage an atmosphere of innovation and excitement, free of the heat and stress of the market. Herein are the ingredients for a revolutionary new alloy, the future of an urgent art."
