True/False 2009: Parades, Food, and Film

True/False 2009: Parades, Food, and Film

I wanted to pause and share some photo moments from this weekend’s True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri. A fantastic event, full of great films and great people, I will have more soon (including some of the program highlights). Here’s a visual primer:


(The annual “March March” parade made its way down the streets of Columbia on Friday, to announce both the festival and the new month.)


(Pressure Cooker directors Jennifer Grausman and Mark Becker take part in a Q&A following a sold-out screening of their entertaining and emotional documentary. Following the lives of Philadelphia inner-city youths who are trying to use a culinary class to help pay for college, the doc is an energetic and touching tale. Look for it this summer.)


(Hanging out at the Ragtag Cinema bar during True/False, here’s indieWIRE’s Brian Brooks, Debra Zimmerman of Women Make Movies, and Yance Ford from POV.)


(True/False provided a quick reunion for those of us who hug out at the Independent Spirit Awards last week. That included, left to right, Spout’s Karina Longworth, doc filmmaker/blogger AJ Schnack, and LAFF/Film Independent’s Rachel Rosen.)


(Food Inc. director Robert Kenner, chats with the jam-packed audience after his film’s U.S. Premiere on Saturday night. Kenner’s documentary, a sobering look at the current state of the farmer and corporate America, premiered at Toronto and recently screened at Berlin. The Participant Media production will be released by Magnolia Pictures in June. Consider it required viewing.)


(SILVERDOCS programming director Sky Sitney, center, is flanked by Big River Man producer Molly Lynch and director John Maringouin at the Filmmaker Fete on Saturday. Big River Man, which won an award at Sundance in January, is the tale of one man’s historic swim down the Amazon.)


(Also at the True/False Filmmaker Fete: Andrew Mer of SnagFilms, left, and doc filmmaker Brad Beesley. Brad’s new documentary, Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo, will have its World Premiere at SXSW in a few weeks.)
