This year, True/False is partnering with the University of Missouri to host the Based on a True Story Conference (affectionately known as “BOATS”), which will take place from February 29–March 2 at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) on the MU campus.

The conference is bringing an impressive group of documentary filmmakers, critics, and scholars to Columbia, including Andrea Meditch (executive producer of films including Man on Wire, Grizzly Man, and others), Betsy Sharkey (film critic for the Los Angeles Times, among many others), and Nathan Rabin (author and head writer of The Onion’s A.V. Club).

The full list of participants, as well as information about registration, is at the BOATS website.
