"True/False is nirvana. When I went to True/False, I remembered what I sometimes forget: the unalloyed joy of making and watching docs." —Alex Gibney, Oscar-winning director, Taxi to the Dark Side

"I have joined the apostles of T/F and spread the gospel far and wide. I’ve been to festivals all over the world, but T/F is special. The audiences are passionate and engaged. The films are brilliantly curated. But, more than anything, there’s an incredible sense of community." —Morgan Neville, Oscar-winning director, 20 Feet from Stardom
