The True/False Film Festival has announced it's 2012 lineup consisting of 39 feature films and 19 short films from all over the globe.

Leading the festival lineup is Victor Kossakovsky's "Vivan las Antipodas!," Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady's "Detropia," Bart Layton's "The Imposter," and Elizabeth Mims & Jason Tippet's "Only the Young."

A large number of of the films this year will be from a group of new American directors with fresh takes on the documentary format, such as Peter Nicks's "Waiting Room," Chris Moukarbel & Valerie Veatch's "Me at the Zoo," and Daniel Lindsay & T.J. Martin's "Undefeated."

The festival also prides itself on screening international documentaries that may have slipped under American audiences radar such as Rokhsareh Ghaem's "Going Up the Stairs," Jose Alvarez's "Canicula," and Xun Yu's "The Vanishing Spring."

Audiences looking for lighter and more fun documentaries will be able to catch screenings of Morgan Spurlock's "Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope," and Lauren Greenfield's "The Queen of Versailles."

The festival also announced that it would make the subjects of "Bully" (formerly "The Bully Project") the recipients of the 2012 True Life Fund.  Money for the fund, which is sponsored by local church The Crossing, is collected at the fest and organizers hope raise close to $15,000, supplemented by a matching grant from the Bertha Foundation. The award, given annually, goes to subjects of a documentary that are seeking to make change in their communities.  The subjects of "Bully" are kids and families who have had to deal with serious, even life-threatening, bullying and are bravely sharing their stories through the film. 

As always, the festival will also be showing a selection of seven Secret Screenings.  These films will be screening in advance of their world premieres and will be off limits to the press.
