Well folks, it has come time for me to close out my first ever True/False Film Fest. It has been an amazing time, but I will do an overview to the whole festival with pictures and videos and a bunch of praise. For now I want to keep this recap strictly to the films and experiences I had during the festival and get you excited for upcoming, full length reviews.
Like every morning, I get up, change and head out to grab some grub courtesy of Lakota and their Chai and pastries. One the agenda for the final day of the festival were 4 films and a closing party to end the fest. What I didn’t realize once I started the day as to how sad I was that this was all ending and the fact that my first film was a powerful and touching documentary on the struggles of AID’s activists in the mid 80s and early 90s. As a straight male, I don’t have a frame of reference to connect with them on a lifestyle level, but the film pulled you in at an emotional level that leaves you with a hopeful outlook.
