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.
