COLUMBIA — It'll probably feel busier than a football Saturday in downtown Columbia over the next few days as thousands of people attend the 2009 True/False Film Festival. Ticket sales start Thursday in the Cherry Street Artisan Annex, 808 Cherry St.
The annex will open at 9 a.m. so people can get numbers to reserve their place in line to buy tickets, starting at noon.
"We get massive crowds that day, so as soon as we open ... we will start giving line numbers to people," said Beth Kopine, the head of ticket sales for the documentary film festival.
Vox magazine kicks off weekend coverage Thursday with stories about how founders Paul Sturtz and David Wilson pledge to keep the growing festival local and this year's True Life Fund focus on life and death journalism.
