True/False Film Fest Announces 2013 Slate

By Mark Lukenbill | Indiewire February 8, 2013 at 2:04PM

Columbia, Missouri's True/False Film Fest was founded in 2004 and has since become one of the most reknowned documentary-centric festivals currently active. This year's slate provides plenty of buzzed about-docs, with Lucien Castaing-Taylor & Véréna Paravel, co-directors of the gripping, haunting commercial fishing doc "Leviathan" being presented with the annual True Vision award. Castaing-Taylor's previous film, the sheephearding doc "Sweetgrass," is also playing at the festival. Other must-sees include the controversial Sundance pic "After Tiller" form Martha Shane & Lana Wilson, Dror Moreh's Oscar nominated "The Gatekeepers" about Israel's intelligence service, and Sarah Polley's beautiful and inventive "Stories We Tell." The festival has a few non-documentary offerings as well, with Andrew Bujalski's Sloan award winning comedy "Computer Chess" playing, as well as Pablo Larrain's Oscar nominated "No" with Gael Garcia Bernal.
