Doing True/False Right

There are a lot of things I love about living in the college town of Columbia, Mo., but one of my favorite annual events is the True/False Film Fest.

For the past 10 years, True/False has shown inspiring and thought-provoking documentary films to audience members who come from all over the country and world. Live music precedes the films, Q-and-A sessions with directors follow the films and art installations line the streets as viewers rush from one film to the next.

I only saw one True/False film last year and wished I’d seen more, so this year, I did True/False right and bought a simple pass. A bunch of my friends did the same, and I had a great time going from movie to movie with them and discussing each one.

It was natural for me as a journalist to contribute to the conversation people were having. Besides writing about merchandise sold at this year’s festival (the perk of having your Missourian weekend general assignment shift this weekend), I tweeted about each of the films I saw. Read my thoughts below:






I’m so glad I got to contribute to True/False coverage and conversation this year, and I’m excited to do it again the next spring semester I’m in Columbia.
