True/False Film Fest
February 28-March 3, 2019 / Columbia, MO / truefalse.org
Recognizing the inherent subjectiveness of “cool,” a panelist concedes that if “a kind of offhand, ineffable atmosphere of intoxicating allure” is the criteria, then True/False most certainly belongs near the top. With its “welcoming essence and endlessly communal vibe,” this midwestern fest programs live music before each screening, passing around a humble hat for donations. Held in the small college town of Colombia, a yearly Oscilloscope house party is only missing a keg stand or two to take festival goers back to their former glory days.
