KANSAS CITY, Mo. – In two weeks, connoisseurs and creators of documentary films will be coming from around the world to Columbia, Missouri for the True/False Film Fest. The event is becoming known as a low-key, DYI alternative to Sundance or Cannes.
At True/False, top documentary film-makers and fans can meet and talk about the craft, which organizers say has exploded in creativity over the past decade. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross caught up with David Wilson, who with Paul Sturtz founded the True/False Film Fest in 2003.
