COLUMBIA — You can still buy tickets to films for this year’s True/False Film Festival. Passes are sold out, but tickets for individual documentaries will be available at noon Thursday at the festival's box office on the southeast corner of Ninth and Cherry streets.
To ensure a spot in line, you can stop by the box office starting at 9 a.m. to pick up a "Q" number, a line number, to purchase tickets when the box office opens. The Q system also allows patrons to show up one hour before a film starts to receive numbers for last-minute available seats. The Q number ensures that patrons do not have to stand in line while waiting for seat availability.
There are more than 6,000 tickets available for individual films, which will sell for $8 at the box office or $10 at the door of each film.
"The Interrupters" is a film that delves into the lives of three Chicago residents who decide the only way to stop the crime and violence that surrounds them is to confront problems at the source. They take on the role of "Violence Interrupters."
Hickman High School’s Courtwarming King candidates have raised $3,000 for this year’s fund, according to a True/False news release.
The school has been involved in the fundraiser since it began in 2007, and in those five years has raised more than $13,000 for the fund.
Each year Hickman has invited the director and subjects of the benefiting films to attend a schoolwide assembly. This year, three people featured in "The Interrupters," along with the film’s director Steve James, will attend an assembly on Friday at the school.
