What is the True/False Film Festival?
What films are showing?
How do I attend the screenings?
Although all the passes to attend screenings have been sold out, there is still a way to attend. An hour before the film starts, go to the venue and look for the venue Queen – the most flamboyant person in the area. The Queen will hand over a Q number and the house manager will release all available seats five minutes prior to the start of the film.
These tickets cost $10 for nonpassholders ($6 for students for films at the Missouri Theatre, The Blue Note and Jesse Hall); passholders get Q tickets for free.
Where are films being screened?
True/False shows films in eight venues. All are within walking distance of each other in downtown Columbia:
