Traveling to True/False
GETTING TO COLUMBIA
With connections through Chicago and Dallas/Forth Worth (offered by American Airlines) and Orlando (offered by Frontier Airlines) flying into Columbia Regional Airport (COU) is more affordable and convenient than ever. The airport is just 10 miles south of town, with inexpensive taxi service available to all festival hotels; many hotels also offer a free shuttle service to and from the airport. We’re proud of our hometown airport and recommend it as the best way to fly to True/False.

For those who'd rather fly non-stop, Columbia is slap dab between two major airports: Kansas City International (MCI) or St. Louis International (STL) airport. The Mo-X Shuttle serves both airports, providing ground transportation from the airport to Columbia (approx. 2 hour drive). Schedule and rate information for MO-X can be found on their website.
Another way to make your way straight into the heart of the Fest is riding the Megabus. This is an inexpensive and easy way to get to Columbia, especially for those of you coming from Chicago. The biggest benefit is it brings you right downtown, into the thick of things. The earlier you book, the cheaper the ticket.
This is the Show-Me State. Sometimes you're best served by just sticking your head out the window to see what Mother Nature's served up. That doesn't help you much if you're packing for your trip, though. So, plan for late winter temperatures hovering around the high 30s or low 40s. Pack your coat and mittens, but take solace in the fact that it's only a short stroll between all of the screenings and special events.
