Seven Documentaries Not to Miss in 2016

Seven Documentaries Not to Miss in 2016

The 13th annual True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri is not a particularly huge festival — held over four days, it screens around 40 features — but its profile has risen substantially over the past few years. It may not be quite as comprehensive as Doc NYC, AFI Docs in Washington, D.C., or HotDocs in Toronto, but the small-town setting, unorthodox screening venues and “thousand-plus” army of cheerful volunteers give it personality.


True/False’s programmers take the nonfiction form very seriously. As their event’s name suggests, they like movies that transform, that push at the boundaries of what is real and what is artifice. Here are seven films screened there this year that should be on your list for 2016.
