PHOTO GALLERY: True/False Film Fest gala attracts masked moviegoers

Thursday, March 1, 2012 | 10:15 p.m. CST

The 2012 True/False Film Fest officially started Thursday with about 100 people lining up early in the morning to get tickets.

The four day festival began with a showing of "The Waiting Room" at Forrest Theater. Later in the day, masked guests attended an opening ceremony at the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts called "The Jubilee." The gala was followed by a screening of the Oscar-winning documentary "Undefeated."

The True/False Film Fest attracts more than moviegoers, however, with various bands playing throughout the festival at different venues. A French band, Les Trois Coups, came to Columbia to play at the festival's opening ceremony.
