Beginning March 2nd through March 5th, Columbians will welcome thousands of people to experience the True/False Film Festival, which features documentary films created by filmmakers worldwide. Growing in popularity since its beginning in 2004, the festival has gained the reputation of being one of the best non-fiction film events in the country.
As always, the festival will begin with the March March. Free to the public, everyone is encouraged to participate. Wear colorful costumes, dance, make lots of noise, and help kick off a weekend of magical creativity! Amazing filmmaking is not the only experience celebrated at the True/False Film Festival. Music and visual arts are spotlighted as well. Festival goers will find a variety of music genres playing in various venues around town. Art installations and exhibitions are included in the creative mix, so while you are in between films, don’t forget to visit all the unique shops, boutiques, galleries, and small businesses in the North Villages Arts District and see what you discover.

Fretboard Coffee Open Mic Night
This 8 ft. tall sculpture by Nathan Pierce is located on the Walnut St. Courtyard. It sets in front of Serendipity and Artworks Studios, next to the Atrium and across the street from Sager Reeves Gallery.
Using line, form, and color “Latitude” becomes a vertical expression of place. By focusing on the vertical line, the sculpture contradicts the horizons of the environment.
Mid-Missouri is fortunate to have a weekly radio program focused on visual art, music, literature, and more. Speaking of the Arts hosted by Diana Moxon the former Executive Director of the Columbia Art League interviews art makers and explores all aspects of creative expression.
Speaking of the Arts can be heard Thursdays on 89.5 KOPN from 7:00-8:00 p.m.
