The stories playing on the screens at True/False Film Fest certainly draw a lot of people to Columbia, but part of the film fest's experience is the community it brings to town.
You've probably heard of the Humans of New York series by photographer Brandon Stanton. Vox has put together a Humans of True/False series showcases a lovely and interesting group of people too. Here are the highlights of costumes, those paying homage to heritage, volunteers and more.
Molly and Shannon Hale are Columbia natives and attending the parades in Columbia are a tradition for them. “Our grandmother had an affair with red coats and we’ve inherited them,” Molly says. Shannon added that red is a color symbolic of #truefalse as well. pic.twitter.com/uav09fwiMU— Claudia Khaw (@ClaudiaKhaw) March 6, 2020
Danielle Hampton is out at March March with her daughters Penny (left) and Dorothy. “We wanted to see some things going on and sell Girl Scout cookies,” she said. She used to attend the fest before she had kids and is planning to make a comeback with them in the future. pic.twitter.com/TYAgYCy2gH— Claudia Khaw (@ClaudiaKhaw) March 7, 2020
Morgan Buscher, an assistant venue captain at @RagtagCinema, has volunteered for 13 years. “The movie playing now is ‘Down the Dark Stairwell,’ which is about police brutality, so it makes sense why (the theater) is packed because it’s the zeitgeist right now.” pic.twitter.com/SASgCGn6qa— Claudia Khaw (@ClaudiaKhaw) March 7, 2020
