Game show and musical showcases highlight day three of the True/False Film Festival


Columbia’s True/False Film Festival is about to enter its third day, with attendees able to catch more than 30 films, plus other events including a game show and music showcases.

The full list of events is available on the festival website websiteas movies start at 9:30am on Saturday with events scheduled until 10:30pm on Saturday night.

“Gimme Truth,” is a documentary game show, which is scheduled to begin at 10:00 p.m. Saturday. Local filmmakers appear on the show, attempting to fool judges and contestants with plays that are either entirely true or entirely fake.

A celebrity panel is expected to take part in the show, and the top three filmmakers will walk away with prizes.

Several music showcases are also scheduled throughout the day, located at Rose Music Hall, Blue Note and First Presbyterian Church, all in downtown Columbia.

True/False officials also encourage festival attendees to shop and eat local, with its website listing more than 40 different restaurants to try.

Although True/False is back in full force after a modified 2021 celebration due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some measures are still in place.

Proof of vaccination or a negative test is required to attend the festival, with masks still required in indoor venues such as theatres.
