True/False Film Festival Announces 2014 Lineup

Posted by Erik Luers on 2.6.2014

Taking place annually in the small town of Columbia, Missouri, the True/False Film Festival, a nonfiction haven for film enthusiasts founded in 2003, announced the lineup for its 2014 festival this week. The festival will run from February 27th through March 2nd.

Along with a slew of secret screenings and shorts programs, Jodorowsky's Dune, a film which documents the celebrated Alejandro Jodorowsky's attempts to adapt the famous Frank Herbert novel, will screen and hold much interest for cinephiles, as will Richard Linklater's Sundance crowdpleaser (and, one could say, inspired by documentary elements) Boyhood

Selections from The 51st New York Film Festival will be making their presence known as well. Co-presented by NYFF's Motion Portraits and Views from the Avant-Garde sections, Manakamana played to enthusiastic Lincoln Center audiences last year, and the film will continue its successful festival run at True/False. The festival will also present the latest documentary from comedy duo Penn and Teller, Tim's Vermeer, which screened in NYFF51's Applied Science section last October. Also featured in last year's NYFF51: Applied Science section, Particle Fever, from director Mark Levinson, was chosen as a True/False 2014 selection. 

Also with links to FSLC, Actress, the latest film from director Robert Greene (Fake It So Real), will have it's World Premiere at the festival. The film, starring Brandy Burre of HBO's The Wire, will screen here at the Film Society this Spring in our "Art of the Real" series.
