True/False Film Fest Announces 2013 Slate

True/False Film Fest Announces 2013 Slate

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.

As usual, the festival will also screen six secret screenings.
