COLUMBIA — Zombies, Batman and even a few out-of-towners graced the halls of the Missouri Theatre on Thursday night to celebrate the kickoff of the True/False Film Fest. 

From Thursday to Sunday night, the festival will showcase 46 documentary films and shorts.

"True/False is tremendous to Columbia," attendee Joe Bindbeutel said through his King Tut mask. "It's becoming more about the art and music and not about the films anymore."
