Vox took to the streets of downtown Columbia to ask people attending the festival what films they had seen so far.
Festival-goers crowded into Missouri Theatre and stood shoulder to shoulder with friends and strangers alike to end the festival with a bang. Well, more like a banjo.
You've probably noticed a lot of people with Vox badges roaming the streets of downtown Columbia during the True/False Film Festival. What were they up to, you ask? Find out by taking a look at our overview of Vox's True/False coverage.

Nobody seemed to know exactly why it’s called the “Weird Wake Up.”
We hit up the Q lines in Jesse Hall, the Missouri Theatre and The Blue Note to chat with some True/False film-goers. We presented them two questions:
Downtown is a whirlwind of pedestrians, traffic, coffee and prices during True/False. When you're feeling sleepy, you just want something inexpensive from a coffeeshop. But unless you've been to every shop, you don't know the cheapest place you can get your fix.
In the Q&A with director Morgan Neville after Saturday's showing of the film, he dropped that Lisa Fischer will be roaming the streets of Columbia today. If you find her, tweet at us (@VoxMag) and send her our love.
There are certain True/False festival do's and don'ts. For you unexperienced attendees, you live and you learn:
From the furious fiddling of Mountain Animation to the guttural punk screams of Toughcats, the performers at Café Berlin’s Toast/False Saturday Busker Showcase brought a veritable menagerie of hybrid-genre musical talent.
Art doesn't always begin with a punch, but today it did.

Everybody knows that booze is a big part of the True/False Film Festival.
Rule 1: You do not talk about SECRET SCREENINGS.

“Does it sound good out there?” guitarist for the alt-rock group Rip Rap asked an enthusiastic audience in Café Berlin’s theater for the Friday Busker Showcase. “It sounds great out here!" An audience member yelled back after the band’s second song of heavy riffs.
After a full day of docs and festivities such as the March March, True/False goers shared recaps and reviews of the screenings, performances and festival life. Check out what everyone was tweeting about.
