True/False Documentary Film Festival
Columbia's True/False Documentary Film Festival was started by David Wilson and Paul Sturtz in 2004. Despite its humble beginnings (the first festival had about 4,000 attendees), it has grown into one of the most respected non-fiction film festivals in the United States. In 2006, it won the Riverfront Times' Best Film Festival award, and in 2010, there were over 25,000 cinema-lovers in attendance. The founders of the festival say that they "love the tradition of film-makers as detectives", and this spirit of truth-finding permeates all the films screened at the festival.
