Increasing ticket sales? Check. Prestigious films and award-winning filmmakers? Too easy. Crowds of documentary junkies hanging out? Of course. Small-town vibe? Duh. Here’s what we want for True/False 2013.
An outdoor venue Come on, if the Roots ‘N’ Blues ‘N’ BBQ Festival can do it, so can True/False.
An official karaoke event This event is the perfect kind of rowdy to loosen everyone up after the more serious docs. Arin Liberman, who is in charge of the box office, suggested this gem.
A True/False travel coffee mug Get the local coffee shops on board to offer discounts on refills. Save the Earth and a film goer’s sanity.
Carriage rides This is the next step up from the pedicab, suggested by festival veteran and volunteer Carolyn Magnuson. True/False date night: complete.
Umbrellas at each outdoor Q For those days when the early March weather isn’t accommodating to our doc devotion.
A Personal golf cart for co-conspirators
We appreciate everything Paul and David do to bring True/False to us every year. This is the least we can offer.
True/False specialty cocktail Something sweet, but dangerous, to help unwind (and rally) after a day of film watching. Call it the Documentini.
Three days of film, six nights of parties Although the docs are the mainstay of the weekend, parties add merriment to the experience. David Wilson, co-conspirator, wishes for 48-hour days to fit in all of their event ideas.
A mute button for chatty viewers Point. Click. Silence is as simple as that.
Slices from Shakes We know, we couldn’t believe Shakespeare’s doesn’t offer their lunchtime deal during the
True/False weekend, either. #TFShakesSlices2013!
Local action based on the film’s topics Bully is already being shown to some Columbia high schools. Festival veteran Joyce Hulett says she would like to see this more often.
Buskers compilation CD If we close our eyes, we’re back.
